Yosemite's waterfalls are at their best right now, following the recent snow and rain. The short but steep hike from Tuolumne Meadows trailhead near Tioga Pass down to Glen Aulin High Sierra camp gives the hiker possibly the best waterfall show in the Eastern Sierra for the effort; within about five miles, the hiker passes three large waterfalls on the Tuolumne River before it begins its even more precipitous descent down the Grand Canyon of the Tuolumne at Glen Aulin.
