Yosemite NP & Stanislaus NF (Cellphone Photos) - California

On 1 May 2022, my parents and I took a trip to Hetch Hetchy Reservoir in Yosemite National Park, Cherry Lake in Stanislaus National Forest, and Lake Eleanor in Yosemite National Park. I took photos with my cellphone at these 3 locations and some random photos during our drive. I hope you enjoy viewing my photos! Unfortunately I'm not able to embed the 4 videos I took, but you can view them here (Google Photos link). The videos are of Wapama Falls at Hetch Hetchy Reservoir, Cherry Creek shot on Forest Route 1N07/Cherry Lake Road in Stanislaus National Forest, Eleanor Creek shot on Lake Eleanor Dam, and Lake Eleanor Dam and Eleanor Creek shot near Forest Route 1N14.

Our first stop was Hetch Hetchy Reservoir in Yosemite National Park. My plan for the day was to walk and hike to Wapama Falls with my mom. Unfortunately my dad was not able to go with us to the waterfall as he is still on crutches.

After we were done at Hetch Hetchy Reservoir, we began our drive to Cherry Lake in Stanislaus National Forest. The next few photos are from our drive from Hetch Hetchy Reservoir to Cherry Lake.

We arrive at Lake Eleanor in Yosemite National Park. Please note you can not drive down to Lake Eleanor as you can with Cherry Lake. You have to walk around a quarter of a mile to get to Lake Eleanor Dam.
