Are you near Sacramento and itching to take a road trip this fall? Yosemite is a favorite destination of travelers from all over the world. The stunning Yosemite Falls and valley below beckon you to stay awhile and take in the breathtaking beauty of what nature has to offer. Add the vibrant colors of fall to that splendor, and you have a road trip that will give you memories to last a lifetime. Here are Advantage Caravan‘s top 3 reasons to visit Yosemite this fall.
1. Color, Color, and More Color
For those who have already visited Yosemite National Park, chances are that you have experienced the dazzling falls or the magnificent cliffs of the valley, but until you have seen it with autumn colors, you are missing out. Each type of tree produces a unique leaf color which makes for an interesting “I Spy” game. Aspens are yellow and dogwoods are red, while black oaks tend toward a burnt orange color. Colors change in mid- to late-October, depending on the weather each year, and last until the first freeze. You can hike or drive to take in the glorious changes.
2. Less Crowds
After Labor Day, fewer people take vacations, so the park is less congested. Consider an RV rental during the fall season as the campgrounds near the park won’t be as full. Likewise, the roads won’t be as congested and you can focus on the beauty around you instead of the crowds nearby. It’s the place to be in the fall.
3. Cooler Temperatures
Along with the change of the season comes a change in the daily temperatures. Although winter may come sooner in the higher elevations, the cooler fall temperatures translate to pleasant hikes and viewing. Bring layers so you can adjust your clothing according to the elevation and any changes in the weather. It’s best to come prepared.
