Foresta Falls 4/24/21
We made a vain attempt to visit Yosemite Valley during peak run-off on a Saturday. There was not a parking spot to be had in the valley by 10am, so we did a drive-through and headed to my back-up plan: Foresta Falls. To see these gorgeous falls , one just needs to drive to the end of Foresta Road's pavement, park on the pull-out out area walk down the old dirt road for about 15 minutes alongside Crane Creek. This road at one time went all the way to El Portal but the bridge spanning the creek washed out many years ago and is in a sketchy state. The 40' falls were gorgeous, and the hike down on this cool spring day through the burn scars of several recent fires was interesting.
