I managed to snag a day off from work a couple of weeks ago and did a last minute 2 day trip to Yosemite Valley to check out the waterfalls at peak flow. We had a very rainy winter in CA and the snowpack was at 176% of average, so that equals big waterfalls...and it did not disappoint..especially Yosemite Falls, which was absolutely incredible. Yosemite Falls - Wikipedia My kids didn't really have a good memory of being there (7 years since our last visit) so this was a good refresher course! One could easily spend years exploring all of the nooks and crannies of Yosemite (over 1,100 square miles)...but seeing the Valley during late spring is something that should be on everyone's bucket list.
