This waterfall was a 12-mile round-trip hike into grizzly bear country. The regulations require that you hike in groups of four or more, so we tagged along with a group of people we met in the parking lot. The group ended up being the Sierra Hiking Club, who were some hard core hikers! It was challenging keeping up with them, to say the least! I generally like to stop for scenery shots, but they barely paused for anything. I only had about 20 minutes at the waterfall (to eat and shoot pictures). I wish I'd had more time because there were lots of interesting aspects to this waterfall, but I had to stay with the group.
If effort meant that your picture was greater, then this picture should be rated great! We were exhausted afterwards (especially since we'd gotten up at 3:30 am and only had 4 1/2 hours sleep)!
