Days still are warm, but there is bracing chill in the air. You can still can drive through the high country at the peak of its love1iness. The wildlife still is around, hiking is a special treat, and there are an endless variety of special gifts enticing Christmas shoppers.

  • Browse through the museum honoring and explaining the lives of Yosemite's first residents, the American Indians. Then walk short distance to the fascinating Indian Village, which is still used for spiritual activities by modern-day Indians.

  • Attend a lecture and learn how the worrisome mix between Yosemite's human visitors end its bear residents has eased, thanks to creative measures and public response to the bears' welfare.

  • Camp in one of Yosemite's many campgrounds, getting up close and personal with the great outdoors. And it's a marvelous way to meet nature-loving" folk from around the world.
