Middle Cascade, Upper Chilnualna Falls, Yosemite National Park

Chilnualna Falls - the Middle Cascade

The middle cascade is about a hundred feet high (for scale, notice the hiker in the white shirt sitting in front of the horizon). Shortly past this point the trail veers left and heads away from the river so abruptly one would think it had seen a bear, but after a switchback it rejoins the water at the top of the fall.
