Yosemite & Whitewater Rafting

17th May 2003 - 18th May 2003



We left for Yosemite at 3:30am just a few hour from our farewell dinner. It's my 2nd time at Yosemite and this time it's for hiking and not for driving around and sightseeing. =P We had about 18 people going for the trip and had 4 vehicles. But in the end, 3 vehicles of people met up to hike...

We hiked up a trail that took us to 2 waterfalls and it took us the whole day... and after that we landed up at a motel in Mariposa, 25 miles from Yosemite. A good rest before we start off for our whitewater rafting trip

Hiking upslope was quite tiring

Me... there was so much mist from the waterfall and we all got drenched climbing up to the top of the waterfall

Wet, wet, wet

A rainbow!
