The hiking book: Hiking Yosemite National Park (Falcon Guides)
The distance: 5.8 miles
The CityGirls rating: 10

Last weekend was the beginning of winter in Yosemite, and T-Bell was there to see it with our friend S.

Arriving late in the evening on Friday to dropping temperatures and rain that threatened to turn to ice, we woke up Saturday morning to a winter wonderland with two inches of fresh powder.

The park had closed the Glacier Point and Tioga Pass roads a couple days earlier, so we were limited to the Valley for our hiking options. T-Bell wanted a hike with good views, so we headed for the Mist Trail to Vernal and Nevada Falls.
