Destinations To Get Back To Your Roots


On the outskirts of San Francisco is the incredible Yosemite National Park. One of the first National Parks in the USA to be created by John Muir, an influential Scottish-American naturalist, author, environmental philosopher, and pioneering advocate for the preservation of wilderness.

The park is 1,200 square miles with deep valleys created with the power of glaciers, abundant meadows, ancient giant sequoia trees, and much more!

Take a day trip from San Francisco to explore this tranquil and beautiful setting. Walk in John Muir's footsteps along the John Muir Way, catch a glimpse of a coyote but don't forget to look up and leave nothing but footsteps behind.

Explore the region at your own pace with a hire car and take the opportunity to camp within the park or stay at one of the park lodges.
