California is no stranger to flashbulbs, but some of her incredible sights just can’t be framed by a photograph. On this active trip, you’ll meet some of the best of them face to face. Heading out of San Francisco, the wide open spaces of Yosemite National Park beckon you for a trip that has it all – rafting, hiking, mountain biking and backpacking. The backdrop of the spectacular granite cliffs and towering sequoias of Yosemite surrounds you as you roll out your tent to camp in the middle of the park itself. Nature: Ready when you are.
