Conditions update...it's pretty gorgeous in the valley. It's also pretty busy. Seems like pretty classic spring break with good weather Yosemite. I was in early over the weekend but by about mid morning parking was full and backing up. When I left 140 entrance station was backed up all the way down to just east of Yosemite view lodge. Friends stayed later on Saturday and ended up in stand still traffic back towards curry village all the way to Yosemite lodge.
Lower Yosemite fall was gorgeous and also more large groups of people than I was personally comfortable being around by about mid morning.
So. It's pretty. It's spring. Based on last weekend i suspect this weekend is going to be even busier with more traffic. Arrive early (long before mid morning) and bring the patience...and maybe some bicycles if you're able.
Sidenote, I'm seeing more cars at wildflower hiking areas outside of the park than I've ever seen in the many years of living up here.
Safe travels everyone.
