Words do no justice to this majestic natural wonder. A jewel in the National Park System, parts of the Park are closed in the winter but the valley itself is open and popular. We were there during a rainy time but there were plenty amenities to take care of us as we drove from place to place. There is also... More

If you are a visitor to California or live here and just want to experience being close to heaven, Yosemite Valley is a must-see. It doesn't matter what time of day or month of the year that you visit. It doesn't matter if you visited a year ago, a month ago or a week ago. The valley is always different.... More

We travel to Yosemite every year to experience the great out doors at another level. This is truly one of Gods masterpieces that has been preserved for all to see. Take a Hiking tour around the Valley, check out Half Dome or go on a Half Dome excursion if your in good shape. They have Tent City for the Budget... More

Around every corner, around every bend in the river or every climb through the mountains. Bring your camera, hiking boots and a big ole smile.

When you've visited tunnel view and drive through Yosemite valley circuit, you go from the rugged mountains to the quiet waters in the valley.

The scenery is amazing, we had a great day, the snow on the ground made it look great. The water falls are fabulous.

This is a bucket list destination for so many. From El Capitan to the Ahwahnee hotel and the many vistas of the great waterfalls so much can be experienced in the valley. I love it in spring because the run off makes for spectacular waterfalls.

Drove about 500 miles out of our way to visit Yosemite, stayed just outside the gate on CA120. Never got in…apparently there was a gravel dump truck accident that closed or partially closed the access road for most of the day. As of 5:00PM on that day it was still taking 2-3 hours just o enter the park. We turned... More
