Snow falling in the Sierra Nevada mountains brings to mind a trip to Yosemite National Park on a Christmas past.

Meadow

If you are lucky, as I was on this visit to California’s most famous national park, the highways will be free of snow, but the mountains and meadows will be dusted with a light coat of what it takes to have a “White Christmas.”

You can build a snowman (or at least pose next to one that another park visitor thoughtfully created for you).

Dick and The Snowman

You can skate on thick ice at a rink while admiring snow-tinged Half Dome.

Or you can dress up in your fancy duds and be among the “swells” attending the fabulous Bracebridge Dinner at the upscale Ahwahnee Hotel.
