Have your ever jumped in your car to head for the mountains to escape the summer heat? Tioga Road has provided an escape to Yosemite's high country for more than 100 years. We celebrate a century of road trips on this cherished route, and look forward to another 100 years.

Yes; we prefer not to have collars on bears, but having them on a few bears keeps those bears alive and wild.

Look at the stride on that bear! Did you know black bears can run 30 mph? But, they can't outrun their GPS collar! Of the 300–500 black bears living in Yosemite, just eight have GPS collars. The GPS collars help us track bears that are spending time in or near developed areas

Sitting by a campfire after a day of play is a treasured and wonderful tradition in Yosemite. A campfire provides a place for conversation, cooking, laughing, reflection and more. Though no matter your tradition, you should always practice minimizing the impacts of your campfire.

Do you feel passionate about preserving and protecting Yosemite? If yes, and if you are visiting tomorrow 9/6 or 9/13, there’s an awesome way for you to show your park pride! Join a park ranger at 9:30 in front of the Valley Visitor Center for a drop-in volunteer program.

September is sometimes associated with a time when the busy season starts to come to a close. This is not the case in Yosemite! Yosemite's busy season continues through September. If you plan to visit during these times, remember to pack your patience and plan ahead!

This yellow-bellied marmot is enjoying its afternoon snack! While this marmot is seen nibbling on a seed, these animals also eat berries, grasses, insects, and occasionally bird eggs. What animals have you seen foraging or hunting for their natural food?

This summer, we've had at least 11 bears hit by cars. This is why it is so important to be an aware driver and follow posted speed limits. Wildlife protection zones, with strict speed enforcement, are now in place throughout the park. .

Dusk is a time for transition. A time when the hubbub in the park begins to wind down. This section of time that begins after sunsets and before nightfall can be a time to take a quiet walk through Yosemite. Let the transition during dusk help you conclude your day in Yosemite.

So many things can happen in just one day! On June 26, 2012, thirty filmmakers spread out around the park to document just some of the things that happen in one day in Yosemite. What's your ideal day in Yosemite?

Have you ever walked (on a trail!) through a meadow? From afar, they may seem like just big empty spaces, but they hide many small wonders. What's your favorite thing to experience in a meadow?
