"Yosemite Valley, to me, is always a sunrise, a glitter of green and golden wonder in a vast edifice of stone and space." -Ansel Adams
The waterfalls are a great and wonderful attraction in the Yosemite Valley.
The "mist trail" is so "misty" ...you can get soaked for sure!,
The Merced river when it is full of melting snow. What a grand impression as it flows through the valley and then down the hill.
In the spring time, the valley meadow is gorgeous . The grasses are tall and very green. The grass is so tall, it is easy to overlook a deer laying down in the grass.
In the late afternoon they are easy to find as they feed in the lush meadow.
If you are looking for a very easy hike, the Mirror lake trail is the one. From bus stop #17, it is about a 2 mile round trip hike. The lake is brimming full and wonderful. While the water is ice cold, it looks very tempting to jump in.
Many have never gone
I am always so surprised how many folks I talk to in the Merced area who have never made the trip to Yosemite. If this is you....or if it has been a while....Spring time in Yosemite is the best!
