SNOWS to FLOWERS YOSEMITE SPRING

Here’s to a lush and beautiful spring we are beginning to witness!  The flowers are making their way up from the Central Valley’s almond orchards and vernal pool circles to the Yosemite Bug Rustic Mountain Resort and it’s Mariposa Lilies and Shooting Stars up to the High Sierras flowers like this Monkeyflower I found in a stream.  Our Spring Page is a good resource for things to do this spring.

In the near term remember the snowsports available to you at Yosemite into mid to late April this year.  This great Yosemite Nature Notes video will fill you in on the Yosemite Ski & Snowboard Area, Ostrander & Glacier Point Ski huts, the world class scenic Yosemite Nordic Center trails to Dewey Point and Washburn/Glacier Points and the easy & colorful Merced & Tuolumne Sequoia Groves snowshoe treks.  We rent snowshoes here at the Bug!

Yes, there have been great winter challenges this year, including the fact that Highways 120 & 41 are still just closed to traffic for slides probably way into March.  But we are here and open on Highway 140 for Yosemite in the noticeably sunnier days heading our way this March and April for your enjoyment.  Notice  YosemiteBug.com private room reservations rates are less than representative online engines or other area hotels this summer, so book directly with us.

Notice our inclusive holiday Easter Dinner on Sunday April 16th 5:30 to 9pm with Morel Carbonara, Rabbit & Boar Meatloaf, Dungeness & Scallop Salad, House Smoked Ham, Chard Spanikopita, Chickpea Cakes with Carrot & Olive Harissa and Mustard Crusted Lamb Chops.  This holiday meal is a less busy than the others we have so don’t miss this menu Chef Talia has made for you.

The whitewater rafting and kayaking  in the Merced River just below us and it will be super this year!  There usually is a kayak rodeo each spring but a date has not been set yet and it will be a worthwhile dip as usual!

Lastly do note that we have The Trespassers, Good Medicine and Willy Tea Taylor playing with us over the next 6 weeks and we then move onto Soul Galaxy & Gail Dreifus with Faith Rumm playing music at the campfire certain weeknights all summer long.  Do make the effort to see these great local favourite musicians!
