Yosemite In The Spring vs. Winter


Isabella Ruiz

Year round the seasons change. There are four seasons that happen throughout the year. Spring, summer, fall, and winter that repeat yearly. You can tell when the seasons change when the weather changes, leaves change, grass changes, and other things. Places that are noticeably different in different seasons are places like national parks.

Last year I went to the same national park called Yosemite National Park in Mariposa California at two different seasons in the year. I went in the prime of spring and prime of winter, and there was a lot of different things. For one when I went in spring it was warm and everything had bloomed and when I went in winter it was cold with snow and frost everywhere. The weather and scenery were totally different from fresh grass and flowers compared to hard snow and whiteness.

The temperatures had been completely different in the spring it was warm around mid 60s and in winter it was in the 20s or 30s in the daytime. The busyness didn’t change though, both seasons had people everywhere and taking hikes or camping. Although spring was the best season since everything had just bloomed and the waterfalls were full or water, it was just as packed in winter. Both seasons were great to visit but if I were to recommend a season to go it would be in spring.
