What is Your Ultimate Favorite Outdoor Destination? YOU can ONLY pick 1 – sorry!
Yosemite National Park! I have to say this place has it ALL when it comes to an outdoor destination. You can camp, explore on foot or bike and just adventure! Before you know it, it is time to leave.

Yosemite is a place that MUST be seen in person – pictures just DO NOT do this place justice! You come to enjoy the escape to the Great Outdoors and ALL that it has to offer from the breathtaking views to the wildlife. In the main sections of the park you may find a little hustle and bustle, however; there is enough room to escape to your own little corner of the park! You will become bear aware in a very short time here too, especially depending on the season.

I am not going to lie some of the hiking trails in Yosemite put up a quite a challenge! Just when you think you can climb no more you climb some more. Then you think great we are now climbing down, however; my knees are now screaming at me. I have experienced the hiker look in Yosemite. You are dusty and dirty from the trail and STARVING!!!

Yosemite offers various options for lodging, so you do not need to be the outdoors type to enjoy the experience of the park! Also, there are many activities to choose from, so you can pull up a chair, wander or hit the trail for a day of fun. You can drive on through for a quick looksie, come for the day or stay for a few days. You will leave a piece of yourself in Yosemite as well as take a piece of Yosemite with you in your heart – trust me it is that special of a place!
