Our next hike was to Bridalveil Fall. It is 620 feet high. The fall is subject to winds which cause the water to be swept sideways, creating the look of a bride's veil. The Ahwahneechee Native Americans called this waterfall Pohono, which means Spirit of the Puffing Wind.

The daytime temperatures were above freezing but it was still very cold at night, causing the spraying water to freeze thickly on the rocks.

Half Dome is one of the famous large granite monoliths in the park. Here is a view of the moon rising over Half Dome as seen from Tunnel View.
