Here is a pretty good list. I've been to many of them. Click on the images for GPS locations and directions.

April will not be crowded, some roads still closed due to snow, and too early for flowers. Water will be flowing, but not raging like in May.

May would be better for the waterfalls but if you are lucky April will have some flow as well. The snowpack in the Sierras is currently at 93% of average - not bad but below historic levels - so the falls should be booming once the higher elevations get warmer.

Be sure to come back in early September sometime when Tioga Pass is open to the Tuolumne Meadows - this opens even more photo ops. You can even go to Mono Lake and Bodie (Ghost Town) for even more fun !!

Have fun and good shooting...
