Request A Review/Comp Version of Image #12634


I will be in Antarctica from Dec 26 2009 through January 26 2010 and thus will not be able to respond personally, as I usually do, to requests for comps. My assistant will be filling in for me during my absence. Please contact my office by phone at (760) 707-7153 to describe specifically how you would like to use the image in your project. Don't forget to provide your phone number and email address if you leave a message. Please note that requesting and receiving a comp image does not grant you permission to publish the image. If, upon receiving the comp, you wish to move foward with publishing the image as part of your project, you must speak with Phillip Colla at (760) 707-7153 to discuss licensing the image and obtain permission to use it. She can provide licensing permission and I will followup with invoice and written license authorization upon my return on January 26, 2010. Thank you.

Image 12634, Vernal Falls at peak flow in late spring, with a rainbow appearing in the spray of the falls, viewed from the Mist Trail.

Vernal Falls plummets 317' (100m) through a joint in the narrow Little Yosemite Valley. It is most easily reached by the Mist Trail, a spectacular route along the Merced River from Yosemite Valley's Happy Isles, through the Little Yosemite Valley to Vernal Falls and beyond to Nevada Falls. The final 1/4 mile approach to Vernal Falls takes the lucky hiker up a damp/misty/rainy (depending on the river flow) chute alongside the falls, filled with spectacular views and roaring sound and wind. For the average visitor (i.e., non-mountaineer) this is one of the most exciting and attainable hikes anywhere in the park and is worth the effort even with summer crowds. The rock apron at the top of Vernal Falls offers a view back down the Merced as well as a place to strip down to bathing suits (this is particularly recommended on hot summer days, ladies) and rest in the sun while allowing one's soaking clothes to dry. For those with the energy and fitness, a short break at Vernal Falls is followed by another two mile hike to Nevada Falls, an equally spectacular fall occupying the other major geological joint that defines the Little Yosemite Valley. Here is a panoramic view and QTVR of the Merced River and Vernal Falls.
