Big Oak Flat Road & Yosemite Falls (Cellphone Photos) - Yosemite National Park

On 17 January 2023, my parents and I took a day trip to Yosemite National Park in California to see snow. We drove along Big Oak Flat Road, and visited Yosemite Valley. The photos are split into 2 blog posts. I hope you enjoy viewing my photos!

These are the photos I took on my cellphone. The photos are from Big Oak Flat Road, State Route 120, and Lower Yosemite Fall trail.

The first thing to greet us are the snow covered trees on the sides of Big Oak Flat Road (State Route 120).

Next we turned off State Route 120 onto the section of Big Oak Flat Road that leads to Yosemite Valley (your only option for a vehicle during winter). 😂 We were greeted by more snow covered trees. I think this is the most snow on trees I have ever seen in California.

Next we arrive in Yosemite Valley. After we parked at the Yosemite Valley Chapel, my dad and I walked through Cook's Meadow, and went straight for Lower Yosemite Fall Trail.

A few tourists before us said they saw 3 bears at Lower Yosemite Fall Footbridge, but my dad and I didn't see them. We did see bear tracks in the snow on the trail though.
