Yosemite in Winter – Amazing Photos of California’s Winter Wonderland
Yosemite in December
You might have seen in my two previous posts, Let it Snow – Happy Holidays and Most Wonderful Time Of The Year, that I enjoyed the holidays in California’s Yosemite National Park. Many of you asked me about the weather, landscapes and my overall visit to Yosemite, so I wanted to share with you some of the gorgeous scenic photos of this amazing place during my winter visit.
The weather was ever changing over the many days of our holiday, which is why you see some photos that have snow in it, and others that do not. The first day we arrived, it was raining but overnight that rain turned to snow and the park transformed into a magical winter wonderland. From the higher viewpoints you can see the clear separation of green forest and white snow.
I’ve been to Yosemite many times before and it’s always full of people. Luckily this time, due to the weather and snow chain requirement there was hardly any people. But this didn’t stop someone from photo bombing while shooting at Tunnel View. (last photo)
I hope our photos give you a glimpse of the beauty and magic of Yosemite. I’d love to know what you think in the comments below!!
Your photographs are fantastic. You have captured the majesty of the Yosemite. I like the winter season the best and used to ski Badger Pass every winter in the 50’s and 60’s. My first visit to the valley was about 1948, with my grandmother, whose sister had lived in the valley when there were still Indians in teepees.
I was one of the first visitors into the valley after it had been closed two years ago, very lucky.
