We agree with the lament of so many guests to Yosemite -there is so much more to experience than a week’s visit can provide.  Yosemite has dozens of incomparable meadows and more than a hundred lakes, plus waterfalls as tall as a 200-story building, trees the size of rocket ships, mountains the size of – well, mountains – and even a few beaches. It’s bigger than a handful of European countries and nearly the size of Rhode Island.  So we are expanding the program to capture the remaining crown jewels of Yosemite.

We will visit more of the lakes, experience even more fabulous views of the world renowned mountain peaks and waterfalls as well as spend a bit more time enjoying Yosemite Valley.  However, we have to work for it!  Two of our favorite all time hikes are joining the program: North Dome and the grand daddy of them all, El Capitan.  You haven’t lived until you have enjoyed lunch at the top of the largest granite rock on earth (El Capitan) with 270-degree views of Yosemite.  An achievement like that deserves celebration, so we will adjourn to the world famous Ahwahnee dining room to celebrate.  Accept the challenge, join us.
