Taft Point Trail, Yosemite National Park, California

Here are four photos from the Taft Point Trail in California's Yosemite National Park.
This out-and-back hike is 2.2 miles (3.5 kilometers) round trip with a cumulative elevation gain of about 200 feet (61 meters). It provides an excellent view of the southeastern face of El Capitan, The Fissures, and Yosemite Falls, which was dry during my October visit.
