About Yosemite Gold

– Ansel Adams

Winter, spring, summer and fall are seasonal magnets for vacationers ready to experience the great outdoors in Tuolumne County in year-round activities. Yet this rural area with its beauty unspoiled by time is a playground shared under the monolithic shadows of Yosemite National Park. With peak visitation running through May and September (without the snow enthusiasts), the beginning of cooler temperatures brings on the brilliance of fall and the smell of woodstoves. Dogwood leaves glow among the Evergreen, Ponderosa Pines and Incense Cedars, while Black Oaks shimmer in golden hues. Snow flakes cascade down in winter, only in the high country.
