WINTER WONDERLANDS

The best time to visit Yosemite Valley? It's now. Although the approach of spring in April usually means incredible waterfalls with relative sparse crowds, nothing beats winter for solitude on the valley floor. And with the storm that just passed by dumping plenty of snow, Yosemite Valley is a feast for the eyes with snow blanketing meadows, accenting trees, and softening the surrounding granite outcroppings.

The gift of volunteerism for the holidays

Donating is a popular way to show appreciation during the holiday season, but not every household has the funds to donate this year. In lieu of making a financial donation, a gift of time and service is just as valuable.
