  • Candy's back there and she's going to try to climb closer to Lower Yosemite Falls.

  • I'm a little clumsy so I don't think I could do that task so I'm just gonna stay right here.

  • Hi! We're Crystal and Candy of Travel Pockets. We're sisters who are half American and half Japanese

  • and we love to travel the world in style.

  • We grew up as military brats so we're used to moving from place to place.

  • That's why we love traveling so much.

  • Dos. Tres. Cuatro.

  • Whoooo!

  • I'm canoeing!

  • We post videos weekly and would love for you to subscribe to our channel.

  • Follow us along on all of our adventures!

  • Good morning. Good morning! We're up at... it's 7:40 right now

  • and we're gonna head to Tunnel View.

  • You guys can still talk. Everybody shut up.

  • ♪♪ MUSIC ♪♪

  • Look at that view.

  • ♪♪ MUSIC ♪♪

  • We're at Tunnel View and this is one of the most famous stops in Yosemite National Park

  • because you get a beautiful view of the valley.

  • It's the El Capitan, Half Dome and Bridalveil Fall. You can see all three of those with this beautiful view.

  • And it's really just right off the side of the road. So you don't have to hike anywhere.

  • It really is just a viewpoint, so definitely just stop by and take a look because it's a really beautiful view.

  • We can't really see it very well right now because the sun is directly in our eyes.

  • It's so bright right now.

  • Yeah, it's coming up right now so we might have to come back later

  • and check it at sunset so we can get a better view.

  • Yea because right now it's 8:00 in the morning.

  • It's about 65 to 66 degrees which is perfect.

  • The weather is really nice.

  • Today is September third.

  • Anyway, the weather is amazing.

  • The view is still great. I just wish the sun wasn't so harsh right now.

  • Come a little bit earlier or come later in the day and I think the views will be even more gorgeous.

  • Yea because I'm having trouble seeing it because the sun is right in my eyes.

  • It's definitely in our eyes.

  • ♪♪ MUSIC ♪♪

  • We're at Lower Yosemite Falls. This is Stop 6 on the valley shuttle. Says Yosemite Falls.

  • ♪♪ MUSIC ♪♪

  • We wanted to use the restrooms first. We thought it was nearby but the signs are very misleading

  • because the signs keep on saying, "Restroom", "Restroom", "Restroom".

  • Oh there they are! Our friends have been gone for awhile, so we were wondering where this restroom was.

  • Poor Wes.

  • I know. Our friend, Wesley isn't going to make it on this hike with us because he has gout, is it?

  • Yeah, so his heel is hurting really bad.

  • I was thinking maybe we could get a wheelchair and push him along the way

  • because there's a lot of flat trails around here. It's not just hiking uphill

  • so I don't know if he'll be down for that but we want him to join us too.

  • But yeah...

  • I can give him a piggyback.

  • Yeah, Mariko can piggyback with her small tiny body. Hahaha!

  • ♪♪ MUSIC ♪♪

  • Getting really brave here.

  • So, Candy's back there and she's going to try to climb closer to Lower Yosemite Falls.

  • I'm a little clumsy so I don't think I could do that task so I'm just gonna stay right here.

  • But we have seen a lot of people climb up towards there. Our friends did it and it looks pretty awesome

  • so if you're a challenger, definitely climb up there

  • but make sure you have good traction on your shoes because these rocks are pretty slippery

  • So there's Candy. Hi!

  • ♪♪ MUSIC ♪♪

  • I almost fell.

  • Oh no!

  • ♪♪ MUSIC ♪♪

  • I'm not going this way again.

  • Alright, Spider Woman!

  • So Candy is back.

  • I'm back. When I was coming back, I kind of regretted going a little far

  • because I got my shoes wet, I started panicking a little bit and I'm like, "Oh man, what if I fall?"

  • It's sharp rocks and it's slippery.

  • These rocks are actually very slippery.

  • And we did buy shoes with grip specifically for these type of things but we do still slip.

  • I was hoping it would be rocks like when we went to Joshua Tree

  • their rocks were gritty so we had really good grip on those rocks

  • but here it's just... I think because the water has made it really smooth, it's very slippery.

  • So if you're going to do this, make sure to be very careful.

  • Yeah, there's plenty of people doing it. I'm just not doing it because I get vertigo sometimes

  • and just a little bit of losing balance will make me lose it.

  • And it's not an official trail. There are signs that say it's very dangerous

  • but we saw some people doing it so we thought maybe we can do it and then everyone started to.

  • Once one person sees somebody doing it, then a whole bunch of people start doing it.

  • But we didn't go all the way to the top. We're not risk takers.

  • I'm definitely not a risk taker.

  • So it's 10:00 right now. We probably got here around 9:00.

  • I think we've been in this one spot in particular for at least 40 minutes.

  • Yeah, well just climbing around and taking pictures.

  • It's a gorgeous day.

  • Perfect weather.

  • Yeah, I mean right now it's 79 degrees.

  • It's starting to get hot but there's still a lot of shade too so it's not that bad.

  • Yesterday when we were driving here, the temperatures outside were 104 degrees.

  • Yeah.

  • So we knew we wanted to get up early and do an early hike

  • because I don't think we can survive hiking in 100 degree weather.

  • Even though it might be kind of shaded but it's still too hot.

  • It was an easy hike to get up here. It's a little trail. It's a loop.

  • If you don't do these rock climbing parts... I mean, saw a girl wearing a dress.

  • Hmm yeah.

  • I mean it's easily doable and a dress if you're just following the trail.

  • We're walking the rest of the trail.

  • Yeah.

  • Oh look, there's a dog.

  • Look at the dog.

  • ♪♪ MUSIC ♪♪

  • Some cool trees.

  • ♪♪ MUSIC ♪♪

  • We just did this loop. And you can do this loop where you start here

  • and then you go around this loop, go to Yosemite Fall, and then go back around the loop.

  • So this whole thing wasn't even that long.

  • 30 minutes walking around but we stopped at lower Yosemite fall for a while

  • and you can actually climb the rocks and go swimming down at the bottom here. It's pretty cool.

  • ♪♪ MUSIC ♪♪

Candy's back there and she's going to try to climb closer to Lower Yosemite Falls.
