Write-up by Peter

After surviving the previous day's grueling hike, we decided we'd earned the right to do a super-easy hike. Actually, I had my reservations about giving out such a cheap leaf, but the weaker people in the group (you know who you are!) managed to talk me into it.

1, 2, 3, ... INCH!

What can I tell you .... we walked from the parking lot along a flat, paved trail to the foot of Lower Yosemite Falls, looked at the falls (which were not tremendously impressive given the low volume of snow/rain this season), sat around and chin-wagged for a while, then walked back to the car. The whole thing took about half an hour. I'm embarrassed to call it a hike (but I'll take the leaf).
