Yosemite Winter Exploration

February 08, 2019 to February 10, 2019
Yosemite National Park
12:00 PM to 10:00 PM








This is an excellent chance to visit California’s most popular national park in its winter glory, and the perfect time to visit the park without the crowds. We will set up base camp at the Yosemite Bug's HEATED tent cabins and take side trips to visit waterfalls, explore the valley and take in some great vistas. At night you can choose to ice-skate under the stars or attend a ranger-led presentation. On Sunday we will snowshoe among Giant Sequoias. Yosemite is a winter wonderland!
