Cold, cloudy and satisfying

Set out about 1 pm to Taft Point in Yosemite N.P. Located off the Glacier Point Road, this hike is a must for any park visit. Not only do you have a fantastic view of the western Yosemite valley, but you can also see some amazing fishers that helped shape the park. The trail is primarily downhill towards the point and meanders through pine and spruce. With the exception of the final 200 yards or so, It is an easy hike that any family member can accomplish.

Once out on the rock we had fantastic views of the fishers that cut right through the mountain and drop off to the valley floor (keep the kids close). There are a couple of fantastic points to sit and reflect what's important and what's not while trying to figure out an excuse to cut out of work and get to the park [img::alignleft:small:]more often.

Coupled with a visit to Galcier Point and a stop off at Wawona, it was the perfect way to spend a COLD November day!
