I'm planning to visit Yosemite June 11-15 and then King's Canyon/Sequoia for a few days afterward. Should I be going earlier in June to see the waterfalls in Yosemite Valley? How dry might they be around mid-June? There are some falls in King's Canyon ("Mist Falls") and Sequoia ("Tonopah Falls") that I'd like to see too. THANK YOU!

The falls will be in full blast in mid-June.

Yosemite Falls tends to become a trickle in August, due to it's small, sun-facing watershed above the valley.

Mist Falls are smaller than the falls in Yosemite Valley, but it's still pretty.

I don't remember Tonopah Falls. It's the Giant Forest and Crystal Cave you want to see there.

Because of the unusual downpour of rain this winter, will there be a lot of waterfalls to see this 4th of July weekend?

Yes, the falls are great this year. They had a 10-year flood last month and the water is just pouring over now, and will certainly last into early July.

The water will probably go down in late July and slow to a trickle in August for Yosemite Falls.
