Minaret Moonset and Falls

Ever since we visited Devils Postpile last August my eleven year old daughter has been wishing for a return trip so she could fish for Rainbow and Brown trout in the rivers and lakes of the Eastern Sierra. So this last weekend we packed up the fishing poles and headed back up highway 395 for a mini vacation.

Attached is a shot taken yesterday (Monday) showing the last quarter moon about to set behind the Minarets.

Here's a shot looking up Minaret Falls. This is a beautiful and easy 1-1/2 mile hike from the park headquarters.

Beautiful series, Jerry. I spend a lot of time in Yosemite, but have only seen DP from Minaret Summit. It's on my list of places to see.
