Celebrate Thanksgiving with a Yosemite National Park Adventure! Yosemite is best known for its waterfalls, but within it's nearly 1,200 square miles you can find deep valleys, grand meadows, ancient giant Sequoias, a vast wilderness area, and much more. While there we will be snowshoeing and hiking through the park. Each night we will stay in heated cabins at the cozy Yosemite Bug. Yosemite is a winter wonderland!
