Springtime in Yosemite
Featuring the best of Mother Nature: waterfalls and spring flowers
Springtime is the optimum season to view Yosemite’s magnificent waterfalls and get a peek at its display of spring flowers. With one full day in the park, the morning will consist of a fully narrated tour to discover the history, geology and people of Yosemite. The afternoon is your time to explore the valley as you wish. Perhaps a walk out to Mirror Lake, or time at the museum and Ansel Adams gallery. In the evening, return to your mountain resort for quiet reflection upon the day.
During our time in the park, visit the area around the newly restored Mariposa Grove (weather and conditions permitting). This area has undergone major reconstruction with new walkways and the removal of its concessions facilities. Galen Clark, the grove’s protector, found healing within these trees and the restoration seeks to bring peace back to the grove as it was when first discovered.
While we will be entering and exiting the park several times, we are confident you are going to love the improved accommodations: Rush Creek Lodge, located just one mile from the Big Oak Flat entrance to Yosemite National Park on Highway 120. It features a contemporary, rustic sensibility inspired by the breathtaking nature surrounding its 20-acre wooded hillside setting. While not inside the park, its location provides an opportunity to enjoy both the park and the serenity of the lodge in comfort and away from the crowds. If you have stayed in the park over the past few years you are aware its motel rooms have become a little tired.
