Travel Photo Thursday: Yosemite at Christmas

Travel Photo Thursday: Yosemite at Christmas

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


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).

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.

  1. Visiting Yosemite in the winter months is always a great experience! I haven’t been in a few years (which is sad since I live in California), but it’s such a majestic scene when decked out in white.
