Here are a couple of pics of a waterfall on Vernon Bailey Peak (mountain to the right of the Window). There were quite a few that could be seen from the basin once the fog moved out, but this was the most dramatic one. Enjoy!

Cool pic!  Was that from the rain that fell today in the Basin?

No doubt. Of all of the times that I have been here it has never rained in the basin. So seeing the waterfalls is indeed a special treat.

JEALOUS! JEALOUS! JEALOUS!

Let's see...if I get in my car now and leave Houston by 10am I can be in the park by...late dinner!

You're doing a great job already. Are waterfalls part of your new job description?
