Rain, rockslides, hail … and more rain made for a wild winter but now that the spring has arrived we are all in awe of the majestic waterfalls and fields of wildflowers that have emerged […]

  • Some call this time of year shoulder season; others call it the offseason. Here in Yosemite, we think of it as the best season, because late winter/early spring affords you the full splendor of Mariposa and Yosemite Valley without all the crowds.
