Avoiding Disaster as You Lean Over the Edge to Get the Big ShotsAt the waterfall some of the best photos can be captured by leaning out over the rail just a bit. You will see many people at this part of the trail leaning out with their camera just held in their hands. They are standing on wet slippery rocks. While it does not happen often, imagine what you would do if your feet slipped. The camera would most likely go flying to the ground below. Keeping your camera on a camera harness strap prevents these types of accidents and lets your hands stay free on any hike.Extending Your California Hiking AdventureYosemite’s Mist Trail is the entry point to two other amazing trails, too. You can extend your hiking adventure by continuing on to the Half Dome trail or the Nevada Falls trail. You will discover more amazing natural beauty.
