Thought this is the best year to visit Yosemite park for the magnificent water falls thanks to last winter's biggest snow storm. So I went checking it out, and indeed all the water-falls shows were marvelous!!! plus the imaginable rock views (half dome, el capiten,...) and along the way, seeing some natural beauty in wonderful plant world: Pacific dogwood - good bloom coming from the help of last year's forest fire; Snow plants - freshly came out of winter snow; and some unknown wildflowers:

If a plant looks good, smells good, don't eat it, grow it!

You bet, Josephine. Our wild nature beauty is all remarkable! That red marble is the snow plant that gets water and nutrients from fungi, which are connected to tree roots (according to the National Park Service). And they came up out from beneath of winter's heavy snow for the spectacular show!
