Southern Yosemite Initiation Itinerary (3 Days)

In this itinerary, we did a weekend camping trip where the focus of this visit was to explore the quiet southern section of Yosemite National Park, particularly in the Wawona area. While we spent the better part of a day just enjoying the relative tranquility of this part of the park, we also managed to fit in brief visits to Yosemite Valley. It was through these repeat visits to the valley that we observed more of the behavior of the waterfalls there (i.e. the correlation between temperature, snowpack, and waterflow) and gained a better appreciation of how to time visits for some of the smaller waterfalls in the region. The table below summarizes our activities over these few days.
