Nature beauty with Granite rocks, waterfalls, and stunning views with lush green plants, no words to describe this place. Must see a place for all ages.

Of the many ways to get around Yosemite Valley, my favorite was driving from spot to spot, then walking around and marveling in the grandeur that surrounds you. This is best done early in the morning or at dusk when the crowds thin out in...More

I hadn't been to Yosemite in years. It's a must-see destination. We like to visit Yosemite every other year or so. Absolutely beautiful and in the evening time there's nothing but stars to see in the sky. The waterfalls are flowing at a wonderful rate...More

Yosemite is indeed everything you could imagine and more. We were fortunate to be there in early June when the waterfalls are full and raging. It is a unique experience that would be missed by mid summer. Tioga Pass Road remained closed until July due...More

We thoroughly enjoyed hiking the Valley. The rivers and falls were running fast and furious due to the melting snow. Caution was advised. In fact, a person fell in the Falls the day before and was missing. We stuck to the trails and didn't have...More

I am planning to drive from San Fransisco to Vagus round the 20th September. Cant decide wither to spend one to two nights in Yoesmite and what route to take or way to see the most things (not hiking) in a day or two? What area is best to stay (not camping) we don't mind long drives but are you better to stay somewhere before and after Yoesmite?
