Yosemite Falls

Yosemite Falls is the other big waterfall that I have seen. It is much taller than Niagara Falls, but not nearly as much water goes over the falls.
The first time I visited Yosemite National Park was on a family vacation. We drove from San Francisco and stayed overnight at a campground with platform tents in the woods. My father saw a bear in the middle of the night. After our stay in the valley, we drove over the mountains on a road called the Tioga road. My father had driven there once in about 1938 (a long time before). He remembered that it was very hard to drive, and that he was very worried about whether the car could stop. At the bottom of the mountain, his brakes were hardly working at all. When we drove over it with the family, the road was better, and has been improved very much since then.

I have visited Yosemite several times since then. The waterfalls are always amazing, especially in early summer. When Evelyn was a baby, Lenny, Evelyn, and I went camping in our own tent in the Yosemite valley. The photo shows the three of us at an overlook point with one of the very tall waterfalls behind us.
