Valley Day!

Day 92 9/12
Mileage 4?
Camped at Yosemite Valley backpackers' camp

We explored all morning today! It was great! We hiked/scrambled to the top of a waterfall and rock hopped upstream. It's a beautiful little river with lots of crystal clear blue pools. Then, we squeezed between a couple rocks and jumped around in the pool under the waterfall. Eventually, we made our way back down to the main section of the valley. We took the bus to Camp 4, but learned that it would most likely be quite loud in the morning. To avoid being kept awake, we opted to stay in the backpackers' camp, and spent the remainder of the day tooling about the valley. The food court was nice, and we enjoyed a bonus sandwich we found on the table outside. On the bus ride to the backpackers' camp, we chatted with the bus driver, a friendly woman who found us "encouraging". That was nice to hear. We are catching the 8 AM bus back up to Tuolumne Meadows tomorrow to continue our journey. JMT here we come!
