  • From Sonora to Hetch Hetchy entrance. It's a strange thing. GOOGLE guided us to CHERRY Lake RD after a fantastic flight. Let's go to the water library. When it rained heavily. is also full of cold. After a hasty rush. We'll go home soon. Home. We'll be flat from MATHER Rd to EVERGREEN Rd. It didn't take long to pick up the 120 road back to Sonora. Listen to managers and 2 of visitors. Hetch Hetchy has no link with the other entrance. Unless you go back to Highway 120. So think well before you go out. Whether to go from Hetch Hetchy entrance. We can go a little farther next time. Not going to this entrance. There are few visitors. The mountain road is dangerous. All the way over the beautiful but all is the cliff. For those of us who don't often drive steep mountain roads. It's raining again. and a concentrated fog. and more cliffs. Even if the wind is beautiful. I don't want to try again.

  • I love this place, especially at sunset, when due to changing lighting colour of water changes, everything becomes brighter, the shadows and sunlight create an unusual picture, watching you can "remain pressed" for an hour. The road to the Lake very picturesque on the Lake there are waterfalls, but I do not, unfortunately, because we have already arrived in 3 hours of the day and given the way there and back and still had to catch up to the campsite, in short we have never reached before him but nevertheless, as everywhere in national parks of the United States here, everything is thought out, go on the tracks one pleasure, where you want to stupenechki is, all civil, sedately and noble people. Beautiful Lake, a picturesque, I even liked more than Mono Lake. Hetch Hetchy entered in our annual pass, do I have to pay something apart I don't know.

  • Gob smackingly beautiful, stunning view points along the whole walkway to the falls, an absolute must for any visit to Yosemite.
  • Nice hike through the tunnel and around the reservoir. Can't help but wonder what it looked like before the dam.
  • A place hardly anyone knows about up at Yosemite Park.
  • Incredible love
