When you take the small detour off the JMT trails you can choose to check out the spears of the Minarets. And on your way up you walk along the Minaret creek. As you can see there are beautiful section of the creek with the water cascading down open areas. To see in person was something special.
This photo below is the end of the Minaret creek water falls. The water funnels down and continues all the way until it dumps into San Joaquin river.
