When is the best time to visit Yosemite?
What a loaded question!  Due to Yosemite’s altitude and mountainous climate, the area experiences dramatically different weather than what is found elsewhere in California.  Although Fall and Spring seem to get shorter every year and the entire state is seeing dramatic changes due to climate change, Yosemite’s four seasons are fairly reliable. Each season is unique and beautiful in a way of its own.  The best time to visit Yosemite is based on the experience you're looking for.  From quaking aspen groves in the fall to the countries largest waterfalls in the summer, there is something special to be found in Yosemite throughout the entire year.
