Went here because we wants to do stargazing see the moon and some planets thru the the telescope in this park. Sad to say it was so cloudy and had a lil bit of rain when we get there. Nothing is visible in the sky, sometimes it got cleared and the sun came out but only for few minutes and cloudy again. Still we enjoy the place because its beautiful. I know for sure we will go back for some stargazing in the future.

So we heard about this falls the "Jump Creek Falls". We googled it and photos looks great so we decided to visit. It was in the middle of May when we visited it and there was rain during that week. It was a lil bit chilly also.

This place is so beautiful, when we get there we choose to hike upper area to see the falls first and then after we planned to go down to the tip of the falls. Hiking up was really a struggle specially when you dont have the right shoes for hiking. It was so steep and a the soil is a lil dry. I am so afraid that i will roll over to the cliff. I had to stop so many times trying to figure out every step i made lol. I did not made it near to the falls as i am really scared lol.

After that hike we decided to go down to the other trail to see the falls closely. As usual we are not prepared, since it rained that week the volume of the water was a lil bit strong and the water was almost above my knee. By the way you have to crossed that water first before you can actually see the falls. The water was cold and we dont have extra shoes with us :(. We backed out and just better luck next time. 

We really want to go back and swim in there because a lot of people do swimming during summer. It was such a beautiful place. We love it there :)

Jump Creek Falls is a waterfalls locate in Owyhee County, just to the southwest of the city of Marsing, Idaho. The falls are accessible by a short, ​14-mile hike from a lower parking lot, while an upper parking lot offers several trails that explore the falls and surrounding areas.

Another dream come true, seeing Yosemite in person is just so ahhh i cant contain it. I am just so happy to finally see it with my own eyes, those big rocks and a lot of falls, it was so awesome. 

 
Yosemite National Park is an American national park located in the western Sierra Nevada of Central California, bounded on the southeast by Sierra National Forest and on the northwest by Stanislaus National Forest. The park is managed by the National Park Service and covers an area of 747,956 acres (1,168.681 sq mi; 302,687 ha; 3,026.87 km2) and sits in four counties: centered in Tuolumne and Mariposa, extending north and east to Mono and south to Madera County. Designated a World Heritage site in 1984, Yosemite is internationally recognized for its granite cliffs, waterfalls, clear streams, giant sequoia groves, lakes, mountains, meadows, glaciers, and biological diversity. Almost 95% of the park is designated wilderness.
On average, about 4 million people visit Yosemite each year, and most spend the majority of their time in the 7 square miles (18 km2) of Yosemite Valley. The park set a visitation record in 2016, surpassing 5 million visitors for the first time in its history. Yosemite was central to the development of the national park idea. Galen Clark and others lobbied to protect Yosemite Valley from development, ultimately leading to President Abraham Lincoln's signing the Yosemite Grant in 1864. John Muir led a successful movement to have Congress establish a larger national park by 1890, one which encompassed the valley and its surrounding mountains and forests, paving the way for the National Park System.
Yosemite is one of the largest and least fragmented habitat blocks in the Sierra Nevada, and the park supports a diversity of plants and animals. The park has an elevation range from 2,127 to 13,114 feet (648 to 3,997 m) and contains five major vegetation zoneschaparral and oak woodland, lower montane forest, upper montane forestsubalpine zone, and alpine. Of California's 7,000 plant species, about 50% occur in the Sierra Nevada and more than 20% are within Yosemite. The park contains suitable habitat for more than 160 rare plants, with rare local geologic formations and unique soils characterizing the restricted ranges many of these plants occupy.
The geology of the Yosemite area is characterized by granitic rocks and remnants of older rock. About 10 million years ago, the Sierra Nevada was uplifted and then tilted to form its relatively gentle western slopes and the more dramatic eastern slopes. The uplift increased the steepness of stream and river beds, resulting in the formation of deep, narrow canyons. About one million years ago, snow and ice accumulated, forming glaciers at the higher alpine meadows that moved down the river valleys. Ice thickness in Yosemite Valley may have reached 4,000 feet (1,200 m) during the early glacial episode. The downslope movement of the ice masses cut and sculpted the U-shaped valley that attracts so many visitors to its scenic vistas today.
The name "Yosemite" (meaning "killer" in Miwok) originally referred to the name of a renegade tribe which was driven out of the area (and possibly annihilated) by the Mariposa Battalion. Previously, the area had been called "Ahwahnee" ("big mouth") by indigenous people. (Wikipedia)










 





We still wanna go back and do some hike. Its so beautiful right? I know my picture does not do the justice of how beautiful this park. I am only using my phone. But still its beautiful. :)
