Once More Down the Bridal Veil

Just after sunrise in the Sacramentos
Dr. K, Becca and I hit the Bridal Veil Falls Trail at 8:10 this morning, and during a two-hour trek we ran into only one other hiker.  We did spook three Mule Deer on our way into the canyon, but they blazed across the trail ahead of us so quickly I didn't even have time to whip my camera out.  Got a lot fairly nice images today, though, during a wonderful hike in very pleasant weather.
