Didn't take the picture, but it's a place I like.
Tuolumne Meadows in Yosemite.

I like this, too, because it is a fine example of what we get around here. Every dang thing is granite, or dirt made from ground up granite, and once a year, there are rivers everywhere! :)

Some of the water stays in beds, almost all have been diverted to impoundments, but when there is snow, and it melts, we get these glorious beauties everywhere. This year promises to be a fine year for snowmelt...

Peace,
Robert

If one had never been, and one wanted to go, when is best. I hate crowds.

Now is a pretty good time, Jim. The problem is, really, the snow. Some parts of the park close due to snow.

Summer has become fairly Disneyland-esque.

I have been spoiled, really. I was living in the shadow of the park for years. I've spent decades schlupping around up there. There is just too much to see.

I'm about 1 hour down the road from the park, now.

Best bet would be to plan a block of time, then stay around there and hit things on consecutive days. Tons of camping available in the park, including some free, and lots of lodges around.

The crowds, as all crowds do, congregate around "easy access" stuff, and almost all the cool stuff is off the beaten path.

My father in law helped build the retaining wall at Glacier Point, by the by. Imagine that view at work, eh?

Peace,
Robert
