Yosemite in Winter

Who doesn’t like snow? It beautifies everything it covers that’s why we call it WINTER WONDERLAND… ❄

I went to Yosemite during the summer (will be another post) and I can tell you it’s another world during the winter.

From Tunnel View – El Capitan, Half Dome and Bridalveil Falls

Winter Road Closure 

Tiago Road (Hwy 120 through the park) and Glacier Point Road are closed for the season due to snow (chains are often required) between November and May or June. Check out Yosemite NP’s website.

Hiking 

In my opinion the most beautiful and easiest hike is Mirror lake. You won’t be dissapointed by the reflection.

Unfortunately Mist Trail that leads to Vernal and Nevada Falls is closed. They are both very beautiful and popular. I walked about .1 mile to get a picture of Vernal Fall. Just amazing.

I just learned there is a way to get Nevada Fall, by the Muir Trail there is a winter route.

The Yosemite Falls is North America’s tallest waterfall, which rises 2,425 feet above the Valleyfloor. This trail starts near camp 4, it’s a steep and strenous hike. On your way to the top you will be rewarded with spectacular views of Yosemite Valley, Half Dome and Sentinel Rock. Something that particularely impressed me was the sound of the waterfall, like thunder. The waterfall is also pretty amazing to watch from Yosemite Valley.
