Merced River and Yosemite Falls - Spring vs. Winter
We braved the crowds in Yosemite Valley in early June so we could enjoy the full waterfalls and rivers and it was worth it. The photo on the left was taken on this trip in June and the one on the right was taken earlier in the year, in January. You can see how much more water there is.
