Spring brings warmer weather and an abundance of outdoor activities to Yosemite

FISH CAMP, Calif. (March 15, 2010) As the weather begins to warm and the snow begins to melt, Yosemite and the surrounding areas come to life with an abundance of awe-inspiring wildflowers and waterfalls. Rolling hills of California Poppies, Redbuds and several other species of flowers can be found on hikes and drives throughout the area. Visitors can also gaze at the sight of the flowing water as it drops rapidly over the steep cliffs.

To experience these magnificent waterfalls, guests must visit the area after the peak runoff begins in April and before the summer heat of  leaves the waterfalls dry.Those wishing to experience the assortment of wildflowers must take advantage of the much shorter viewing window, as the flowers are only in bloom from late February to May.
