Yosemite Falls

Wikipedia lists this waterfall as the world's third highest and sixth highest. A user comment on the Image:Yosemitefalls.jpg image indicated that it was the fifth highest. Since it doesn't really matter to the article, let's just leave things as "one of the world's highest" unless someone can come up with a definitive rank. -- Ryan 01:15, 12 Jul 2005 (EDT)

Even better, WikiPedia:Yosemite Falls not only says it is the sixth as you mentioned, but the image caption in the article says it's the 18th. Totally agree with "one of the world's highest." -- Colin 20:50, 9 November 2006 (EST)

Rafting

I've removed the section on rafting since according to http://www.c-w-r.com/information/yosemite-rafting.html there is no rafting on either the Tuolumne or Merced rivers within the park. -- Ryan 13:14, 16 Jul 2005 (EDT)

Yosemite Valley Image

Hopefully the new Yosemite Valley image works better, but as always feel free to change things around - the image change was supposed to be followed by a (tongue-in-cheek) "subject to Colin's stamp of approval", but work-related matters intervened and I got sidetracked. Also, I went through my Yosemite pictures and none seemed particularly noteworthy, but am always willing to include any of them in the article. -- Ryan 14:57, 1 Aug 2005 (EDT)

I had a change of heart about the main image, so I went digging through my stash of photos. Unfortunately I couldn't find anything that was iconic for Yosemite, but hopefully the new main image is OK - feel free to change if desired. I also removed an older image that was basically a close-up of a cliff with trees sticking into the frame - Yosemite is a really beautiful place, so we can probably do better. -- Ryan 17:36, 9 November 2006 (EST)

anyone have insight on biking in Yosemite?

Biking seems to have been missed.

where to rent bike trail map if you bring your own bikes can you carry them onto the shuttles instead of conjuring a parking place on Valley floor?

I don't think it was missed so much as no one who was a biker has yet edited this article. Feel free to take a look at http://www.nps.gov/yose/trip/biking.htm (it is public domain so can be copied) and add any relevant info to this page. Also, if you create an account and log in it makes conversations easier, and you can sign your posts with four tildes ("~~~~"). Or not, just a suggestion! -- Ryan 13:59, 31 May 2006 (EDT)

What to Bring

Can someone include information on what to bring (particularly for small day hikes)? Try to assume that there are inexperienced folks who just want to see the sites!

I also have some questions on safety issues...how safe is it for two young students of small stature to be travelling to Yosemite alone? We will be depending on Amtrak as we do not drive, and we are having trouble planning this trip!

Maps

Can someone link a few good maps of the valley area?
