Fern Spring is probably the smallest waterfall in Yosemite Valley. It is just off the road and in the shade. These two images taken on day 6 of ANPAT 8.

Half Dome early morning from Olmsted Point.

After spending the night at a run down motel in Lee Vining we were told we could return to Yosemite Valley and rejoin the Nikonians group after the 2nd rockslide at Curry Village. We stopped at Olmsted point to view Half Dome from a different perspective. Olmsted point is on highway 120 (Tioga Pass Road). Half Dome is about 5 miles away, but over 30 miles on the highway. Image taken on day 5 of Nikonians ANPAT 8.
