What a paradise! miles and miles of meadows with icy streams flowing past. Its like walking in your favourite dream. Absolutely stunning with its flowers and birds and ground squirrels, coyotes, etc. its a long drive from the national park gate but so worth it!

What a wonderful place to view the flowers of Yosemite! I absolutely loved it here! A photographers paradise! Was here in early June and though early for some flowers, some were in full bloom and it was AWESOME!! There weren't too many people around this early in the year either. The hike was quite easy.

This is a very popular tourist stop within the park so be prepared for crowds. It offers plenty to see in a nice flat area making it easily accessible to all ages.

We stopped here and took a short walk along the river for about an hour. Every step was gorgeous! It was so peaceful and beautiful.

We spent a day exploring the meadows and found it to be a very educational and interesting experience. Be prepared for wet soil conditions; take water with you; take a light jacket.

It wasn't the greenest time of year for the meadows, but we did see two coyotes along the drive. Both looked very healthy. So keep an eye open for them.

Unfortunately for us, the area is closed at this time and will be for a goodly period...check the website. I placed this here to convey the closure. The rating is meaning less, as we could only view the area from the... More

It`s almost 3000masl or 9000feet hight. You can breath fresh air (unless there is no fire and smoke around). You can walk around or ride horse. You can swim in a lake (if you are adjusted to low temp :) and you can climb the mighty granite rocks. Or you can just drive through and enjoy the scenery. That`s all... More
