The Outdoors

Welcome to our blog where I’ll share my experiences with you on different trips and adventures that my friends and I have taken.   We welcome all feedback and hope you enjoy.


There’s no better way to get up close and experience Yosemite and the Sierra wilderness than by setting out on foot and hiking. Because when you slow down and commune with nature, you see things you might otherwise miss. Things like waterfalls, wildflowers and wildlife that you can find at any turn when hiking in Yosemite.

Wherever you start, chances are you’re close to a number of great Yosemite hikes. From Half Dome hikes to Yosemite hikes to lakes and more, there are so many trails in Yosemite National Park, and so many excellent guide books and maps describing them that you’ll never be at a loss for a great Yosemite hike. Of course, being prepared is key, whatever time of year you venture into the wild of Yosemite. Bring a good pair of walking shoes and pick up books or maps of Yosemite,  Sierra National Forest and Stanislaus National Forest at the Visitor Centers and stores in Yosemite Park and in Mariposa, Coulterville and other gateway towns. And don’t forget to book an unforgettable place to stay when the sun sets and it’s time to pack it up and refresh yourself for another day of hiking in Yosemite. Because nothing beats the comfort of a warm fire when the day’s finished.

With more than 800 miles of hiking trails in Yosemite National Park, you’ll find the right one for your family or group no matter where you begin. Don’t forget to bring your camera!
