went for a nice easy walk and jog this morning.(easy compared to Snow Creek trail, that ones alot steeper than 4 mile trail) I started here in the Valley. went up the 4 mile trail to the top of Glacier Point. then jogged down Panorama Trail, across Illilouette Falls bridge to the John Muir Trail, and down past Nevada falls to Happy Isles an' home. took a lil over 4 hrs. was 14.5 miles with 8000+ft elevation gain. Garmin link with all that map info is at the bottom of this post below my pics, like always. The weather was really neat . ide never taken a couple of these trails, so i took my time lookin at neat stuff. itsa fun lil easy-training day loop. started it just befor 8am, and was home by 1pm without even trying. heres the pix!

Nice.  Decided to trade in the little red Ferrari backpack, did you?

What's the blue thing in the first photo?  A waist pack?

Is might just be the distance & cloud cover in the picture, but does anyone else think that the flow going down Yosemite Falls looks a little weak for May?  It might go dry in the fall.

and yeah. i needed a proper lightweight runnin pack. mines the Deuter Speed Lite 10. its a good pack, its got side pockets for your squirrel Smile

and @ atomicoyote, it does go dry in the fall, most of the falls here do. It was dry here last year by august, the tourists were pretty upset about it , like its our fault , lol, damn city folk.

Yosemite Falls were dry when we were there in September, 2008.  We do I see about getting a refund of my admission fee?   Wink

 I heard it went dry because the employees were taking too long in the shower.  Wink

Falls look good to me, but then I'm comparing them to what I've been seeing in the local mountains here in terms of flow (very low here).

I might have seen something about a fee last time I was there. Cant really say because it was pitch black..about 5am. Past this booth looking thingy that was abandoned for all I know. Cool

Note: If someone is offended by my joke...I did have a yearly pass....that I bought Laughing

Nice pics as usual everyday.

ya, its not very steep though, so that makes it easy. compared to Snow Creek trail or the Grand Canyon, those trails gain 1000ft per mile, 100ft every 10th consistently, thats hard. This ele gain on my new route gains and loses that 8000ft over a long distance, with downhills and flat parts in between for a chance of some recovery from all the UP. so, comparatively, its easy. Just depends on what youre used to.  Running down and up in the grand canyon all the time for 14 months when i lived there a year ago kinda makes everything seem easier now! ha.  ...and alse, at the GC i was living and running at 6900ft elevation everyday, here in yosemite im only at 3800ft. so theres lots more 02, and more shade so that = easier Smile
