John Muir Trail Photos, Day 1: Happy Isles to Nevada Falls

I started late my first day, so only hiked in four miles. Far enough to have a great view at sunset, though. Nevada Falls was one of the few waterfalls still flowing this late in the year. At dusk, I detoured onto the Panorama Trail for a better view of Half Dome from camp under the full moon. And to avoid crowds in Little Yosemite Valley. And because I took a wrong turn.
