Yosemite National Park – Spring 2017

“As long as I live, I’ll hear waterfalls and birds and winds sing. I’ll interpret the rocks, learn the language of flood, storm, and the avalanche. I’ll acquaint myself with the glaciers and wild gardens, and get as near the heart of the world as I can”.”     ― John Muir

While the signs of spring seem few and far between (but slowly becoming more apparent) up in Tahoe and our favorite trails are under feet of snow, just south in Yosemite Valley, spring is in full force! The waterfalls are huge, the rivers are fast and everything is green and lush.
