With National Parks closed during the COVID-19 pandemic, the virtual visit is now as real as we can get. Fortunately, I have a vast photo library of places I love, places I would love to be, and I will share them with you so that we can all look forward to the time we can go out and go in, again.

These photos were taken in early May 2016, when the lupine and dogwood were blooming, and the waterfalls were pounding throughout the Park.

On the way up or down the Mist Trail, you can spot Illilouette Fall

From Happy Isles where the Mist Trail begins to the top of Vernal Fall is one and a half miles with 1,000 feet elevation gain. But it is worth every step if you can do it.
