Camping in Yosemite

Yosemite offers many family fun activities including kayaking, bicycling, sight-seeing, and hiking. There are a variety of trails ranging from easy to hard so be sure to ask your guide which trail is perfect for you. One of the most famous trails in the park is the hike to Half Dome’s peak, but while this trail may be one of the most beautiful sights to see in Yosemite, it is also very strenuous.

If you plan on this undertaking, we recommend at least one month of training.

If you are looking for a more leisurely hike, a very popular trail would be a hike up to Bridalveil Falls. If you are looking or an elegant dinner with family and friends check out the The Majestic Yosemite Hotel’s Grand Sunday brunch!

 

 

Watch the Sunrise over the Grand Canyon

The Grand Canyon will provide you with a culturally rich experience as well as an exciting spring break destination. Learn about Indian tribes long ago, endangered animals such as the California condor, or attend an evening program discussing some of the major players in the development of this Park throughout American history. The Grand Canyon is one of the most popular spring break destinations!

No one, except the guys that made it there, will ever understand how much we had to go thru to get to this place. We didn’t shower for 5 days and slept in the car the entire trip. It was not easy. Sadly, IGers/photographers don’t get enough credit for all the trouble we go thru. With the constant BS changes of the Instagram algorithms. Though I am human and get discouraged at times at the lack of ‘engagement’ it’s more important than ever to remind myself to do it for the love and the memories. _______________________________________ I would do this weekend all over again with this great crew. @champagne_images in frame @831gaberodriguez @neilbennett3 ____________________________________ #pptakeflight I love traveling because I love seeing the beauty of the world and showing it through my social medial.
