Millions of people have visited and photographed Yosemite National Park, but many of those visitors have not seen the park in all four seasons.

Los Angeles Times photographer Mark Boster spent a year photographing all four seasons in the region that spans eastern portions of Tuolumne, Mariposa and Madera counties in east central California, for what he has called Project Yosemite, “the project of my dreams.” Boster has been smitten by the beauty and grandeur of Yosemite since he first visited the park as a child with his family. With over 100 stunning photographs, Boster showcases the park’s colorful blooms and rushing waterfalls of spring, clear skies and copious tourists of summer, golden hues of fall, and winter's frozen glimmer. What is the most beautiful time of year to visit Yosemite National Park? How does Yosemite compare to other national parks in terms of aesthetic allure? Tune in to find out.
