Yosemite National Park, California 2008 -- This photo shows why this area is nicknamed the "Giant Staircase": Below is the 317' drop (officially only 240') of the Vernal Falls into the Merced river; above is the 594' Nevada Falls of the same river. A few days later, we drove the edge of the Merced as it grew steadily wider but much less forceful.
