In April we had 3 days of adventure hikes with YExplore to Mariposa Grove, Eastern Yosemite Valley, and Sentinel Dome/Taft Point. Since it was our first time in the Park we completely relied on Catherine’s advice in planning our program for Yosemite. All three hikes were unforgettable! Elspie Mange and Erik Sloan, our guides, were excellent and very knowledgeable. In addition to seeing breathtaking views we heard stories about the history of the park, climbing, and nature. One of the best vacations! Thank you! Helen Stein

John took us on a really enjoyable 5-hour hike to Inspiration Point in early January. John is extremely knowledgeable on a wide range of subjects (geology, trees, animals, history, etc.) and will happily answer any questions you have. The pace of the hike was perfect and the views among the best I have seen anywhere in the world. Very competitively priced and worth every penny. Thanks a million! P.s. I know John also leads trips on more technical/demanding routes, so also a good option for more the experienced.
