The best time of the year to visit Château du Sureau is during the high Sierra summer — in full effect from May to September. The spectacular California weather is typified by long, sun-kissed days with cool breezes coming off the mountains that keep things temperate. Summer is also the best time of year to view nearby Yosemite National Park’s legendary waterfalls. The park is home to some of North America’s highest falls, including its namesake Yosemite Falls — which has a total vertical free fall of over 2,425 feet — and Chilnualna Falls (with a 2,200-foot drop). If you’ve always wanted to spot a grizzly, you’re in luck — this is the time of year the bears are out and about in the park with adorable cubs in tow. Just don’t let Yosemite’s real-life Yogi Bear and Boo Boo get a look at your picnic basket.
