    Plenty of people at that first waterfall. ground dwellers! Those ground campers are CRAZY! One of’em doesn't even seem to have a tent! He’s hard core crazy! That waterfall cascade was great! Thanks for taking me in for a swim, looked pretty cold. Fairly extreme looking place to walk in. Fun video that is worth putting up with the little bit of camera noise. The water in the rivers there is SO clear and inviting. Still wouldn’t get me in there, looks c, c, cold! All three of you’z are completely crazy! I giggled pretty much all the way though it! When you get your camera fixed, go back and shoot another video, I’d like to see more of that place. Verrry nice...thanks, gRaFFiX!

    The worst thing you could do in your life is show up at Yosemite with a single day. If you do this, just find a bench, sit down, and cry your eyes out.....LOVE that place - will watch the video in a bit...

    Great trip and I'm glad to see your father endured it also (what a trooper).

    Good to see everyone laughing thru the whole hike. Thanks for posting the video and the trip report.

    Great trip report, though I missed more shots of your hammock gear (I know I have seen it before, but I just love hammocks).
    Thanks for making and sharing the video.

    The problem was I only used my hammock the first few nights (when you did see it) and i slept.... well that's not important where i slept other than to say it wasn't in my hammock. I will say that I slept miserably without it. One night I got sick from over exurtion and could barely pull my sleeping bag out without vomiting. If I didn't though, I would have gotten hypothermia for sure.

    I REALLY enjoyed these videos! Yosemite is one of the greatest places on earth. That's cool that your camera was waterproof...too bad the mic wasn't!!!

    Thanks for posting!
