In what’s become an annual thing, the National Park Service is once again waiving entrance fees in celebration of the Martin Luther King holiday, next Monday, January 19th.
If you’ve never been to Tuolumne Meadows then you’re missing out on one of the best parts of Yosemite, in my opinion. It’s a broad, grassy valley surrounded by sharp, knife-edged peaks and domes that makes for some very beautiful scenery. But it’s always been a bit of a mystery how the meadow and the unique mix of geological features surrounding it formed. Now researchers think they may have uncovered clues to how the meadow formed and likely it has to do with the way the Sierra Nevada itself formed.
Youth programs in the park provide opportunities to teach life skills that participants can apply to the rest of their lives.
If you’re looking for something to do this Veterans Day come to Yosemite and get in for free.
