     The busiest time of year in Yosemite-but the entire park has been re-opened by Mother Nature. Hiking and fishing open up in the high country, the marvelous vistas of Glacier Point are available, the grove of giant Sequoia trees is easy to reach and the only road across Yosemite is open. If you want to see everything there is to see in Yosemite, this is the season for you! Here are a few things to enjoy:

  • Drive or take the bus up to the Mariposa Grove of giant trees, enjoy the open-air tram ride, walk among the crowd of biggest living things on the face of the earth.

  • While you' re up that way, pause at the Pioneer Yosemite History Center. It is a collection of historic buildings from around the park-such as the U. S. Cavalry headquarters-and colorful guides re-create the old days in Yosemite.

  • Play a round of golf at Wawona on one of the most unusually located courses in the world.

  • Take in daily walks and lectures by experts who will tell you everything you ever wanted to know about Yosemite.

  • Go climb a rock: The friendly folks at the Mountaineering School will teach you how to do it right.

  • Drive to the nearby communities of 0akhurst and Mariposa for a dinner at several world-class restaurants. Visit the several Mariposa-area wineries and discover the delights of mountain wine.

  • To really get to know and enjoy the park, sign up one of the Yosemite Guides--a group of top-ranked Yosemite experts who will guide you on a unique tour, tailored to your special interests.

  • If you enjoy driving, pack a picnic lunch, climb into your car and take a tour of the back roads of Mariposa County. You'll taste the flavor of small-town America, see some history (but no crowds!) and meet the friendliest people in the world.
