Labor Day at Vernal Falls in Yosemite

For Labor Day weekend and the week after, my family and I went camping at Yosemite National Park. We hadn't been since I was in elementary school and it was beyond overdue. For an entire week I stayed off of my phone (and didn't bring a computer) and it was amazing! You start to realize just how often you look at screens each day for no real reason when you cut yourself off. I will definitely be trying to incorporate less screen time in my days now!

On Labor Day we hiked up to Vernal Falls which still had water flowing though in comparison to earlier in the summer or in the spring, there was hardly any water. But you could still hear the sound of water crashing onto rocks and feel the power it has. The hike up is not easy though and by the time we were about halfway down my knee couldn't take it anymore and Nathan rescued me by carrying me the rest of the way down. At the bottom I climbed over some rocks and took off my shoes to dip my legs in the icy river water- natural ice for my knee right!? haha Anyways, it was so much fun and I definitely recommend taking the trek up to Vernal Falls and if you have more time/energy continuing on to Nevada Falls. My brother did and said it was even better. I'll share my other Yosemite pictures in a different post but I hope you had a great weekend, hopefully more fun than mine which was full of unpacking, cleaning, and laundry!
