View of Tueeulala Falls and Wapama falls from the trailhead.
Walking across the O'Shaughnessy Dam at the western end of Hetch Hetchy reservoir.

Looking up on a Tueeulala Falls
You can see the spray from Wapama Falls
Getting closer to Wapama - starting to feel the cool breeze.
Sooz on the trail
A first peek at Wapama
About to cross the bridge - the breeze is blowing strong off the waterfall and the mist feels so good in the heat!
Looking through the mist of Wapama Falls. I put my camera away to prevent water damage.
On the other side of the bridge that crosses the base of Wapama Falls.

Looking down to the reservoir from Wapama Falls
There is no doubt that water is a powerful beast.
Looking back towards the bridge and the way we came.
At camp near Rancheria Falls - my pack always explodes when I find camp.
Setting out my new Goal Zero charger to test out. It charged the battery pack in no time at all!
After settling into camp we wandered down the Rancheria Falls cascades. Gorgeous!
Pavla and Sooz next to the 'waterslide'.
We found a little swimming hole off to the side. The water is all fresh snowmelt, however, so swimming was a bit challenging. Sooz was the only one to dunk all the way.
My feet certainly appreciated the refresh.

When they say drown your campfire I don't think this is what they had in mind.
Next we hiked upstream from our campsite to the bridge.
