Hadn't planned on hiking the Pano Trail, but the bridge above the falls was the only way to cross Illilouette Creek heading up to Merced Pass. Harsh mid-day light, but hey, I was just passing through...
Before descending to the top of Illilouette Falls, this is the view looking east, to Vernal and Nevada Falls, and Little Yosemite Valley. Peak on the right horizon, almost 17 miles away, would be Mt. Lyell, at 13,114' the highest in the park ( I think I've previously written about escapades up there...). On the left, Half Dome towers over all.
