Serendipity is a great thing. Being in the right place at the right time. At that point it doesn’t matter what camera you have, just that you’re there to experience the moment
With Memorial Day coming up you can expect the park to be crowded. Unfortunately, this is California and the idea of public transportation just really hasn’t caught on so most of the visitors to the park come via their own car, truck or motorcycle. With all those cars that also means that you’re going to have to get gas somewhere. But did you know there’s no gas IN Yosemite Valley for visitors? Nope, not a drop. In fact, the nearest gas is miles and miles away so you’ll need to plan your trip accordingly. Here’s a list of places to get gas in and around Yosemite.
After reading yesterdays weather forecast for the week I didn’t really figure I’d see this much rain and snow. Currently there is rain and snow falling on the western slope of the Sierra from Sequoia/Kings Canyon to Lake Tahoe. No word on road closures at this time (5am).
An unstable air mass is making it’s way into California bringing with it cooler temperatures and thunderstorms. There may be hail and snow flurries at some elevations. Temperatures are expected to be just above freezing in Yosemite Valley on Tuesday night. Don’t worry though, temperatures are expected to return to the 70s and 80s by the end of the week with plenty of sun making for a nice Memorial Day weekend.
