Yosemite Winter Camp And Explore - SBC and PDC
This is an excellent chance to visit California’s most popular national park in its winter glory, and the perfect time to visit the park without the crowds. We will set up base camp at the Yosemite Bug's HEATED tent cabins and take side trips to visit waterfalls, explore the valley and take in some great vistas. At night you can choose to ice-skate under the stars or attend a ranger-led presentation. We will also have the opportunity to snowshoe among Giant Sequoias. Yosemite is a winter wonderland!
