The Week’s Events – Jan. 11 to Jan. 16 +1

OAKHURST–Included in this week’s events writeups are events taking place in Yosemite National Park. For us locals, this is arguably the best time of the year to visit our neighbor to the north–fewer crowds, spectacular vistas and the majesty of the valley ringed by snowcapped mountains. Who knows? You might even get to see some frazil ice if the conditions are just right. But if you’re not up to making that journey, there’s plenty to do right here in Eastern Madera County.
