Summary of The Day: After departing San Francisco, you’ll head through California’s famous Gold Rush Country, high into the mountains of the Sierra Nevada. We'll arrive at our destination at around noon. Then, it’s time to experience the majestic views from Yosemite Valley with some of America’s tallest waterfalls and towering granite cliffs rising 4,000 feet from the valley floor.
You’ll have the opportunity to explore on foot, by bike, or possibly by raft or mule. Hiking trails abound, and this afternoon your guide will help you find the perfect trail to take in this glacially carved valley. Afterwards, relax on the bank of the Merced River and soak up the spectacular views.
At 8:00 pm we'll head back to the rustic mountain resort to kick back, have some drinks and share the stories of your day.
Summary of The Day: This morning, we’re off to explore more of what Yosemite has to offer. Your guide will set you up with an amazing morning hike or a chance to capture a few more iconic photos followed by lunch among the fabled Giant Sequoias.
This afternoon, you’ll ascend to almost 10,000 Feet (3000+ meters), traversing Yosemite’s Tioga Pass viewing iconic sites like the reflective Tenaya Lake and weaving your way through Tuolumne Meadows before descending the fiercely steep eastern slope of the Sierra Nevadas.
Next up, an overnight stay in beautiful Mammoth Lakes, California. With a hint at its prehistoric past, the name is quite fitting… the size of the mountains, the number of lakes, and the expanse of the valleys. Try your hand at mountain biking or take a scenic Gondola ride up to 11,053 ft (3368 meters) and check out one of the most stunning 360 degree views in California. Explore the geologic, natural, and human history of Mammoth and find out why this is one of the most studied regions in the world.
Summary of The Day: We’ll start our day with the option to visit the Ansel Adams Wilderness area. This rugged place was named in honor of the famed nature photographer where you’ll have the opportunity to visit the Devil’s Postpile National Monument that is a rare sight in the geologic world, and with a name like that, you won’t be disappointed. You’ll be amazed by this strange columnar basalt formation and may also choose to take a short hike over to Rainbow Falls to snap a selfie.
Next, you’re back on the road, this time headed to Lake Tahoe. Along the way, we’ll get off the pavement to experience a bit of Gold Rush history at the remote National Historic Landmark known as Bodie Ghost Town.
End your adventure-filled day by trying your luck at blackjack, or the roulette wheel at The Hard Rock, Harrah’s or one of South Lake Tahoe’s other casinos. Gambling not you’re thing? We’ll set you up with a sunset sail or a lake cruise to Emerald Bay.
Summary of The Day: This morning, you’ll get to choose your own adventure. Get up close and personal with the highest alpine lake in the USA either by kayak, stand-up paddleboard or bike. If you would prefer more of a bird’s eye view with panoramic vistas of Lake Tahoe, Carson Valley and the Desolation Wilderness, take a 2.4 mile gondola ride up, up, up to Heavenly Mountain resort where an array of adventure activities await you. Having trouble deciding? You always have the option to keep it simple and go on a short hike with the guidance of your professional guide.
This afternoon, you’ll leave Lake Tahoe behind and, after passing through the state’s capital city, Sacramento, you’ll follow the historic Pony Express Trail through El Dorado National Forest.
We’ll drop off at our Gateway Hotel by 9:00pm.
