Yosemite Area Wildflower and Waterfall Update

Yosemite Nature Notes Blog: Vernal Equinox reports on wildflower bloom and waterfalls in and around Yosemite:

“In the Merced Canyon below the park boundary, greenery is soaking up the moisture; great numbers of flowers are in bloom. Dense poppies cover the south-facing slopes in the area burned by the Telegraph Fire of 2 years ago. In contrast, last summer’s Motor Fire area is generally not greening up well. Buckeyes are leafing out, elderberry leaves are barely emerging, and redbuds are just starting to show.The waterfalls are below average in volume now, but it’s good that we’re adding some fuel this week for later runoff.”
