We left San Francisco on Sunday, and drove through the valley to the Yosemite National Park. Beautiful mountains and deep ravines there. Eventually we stopped at Yosemite village, a nice shaded valley and park surrounded by close mountains. We walked to the bottom of Yosemite falls, where I climbed to the plunge pool. The waterfall, which is the highest of the US with its 730 meters, was thin due to the draught. It was warm, and a lot of people were cooling off in the pool.
