|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.
