Trip Itinerary:  Your guide will meet you at the parking area for the Mariposa Grove, near the southern entrance of Yosemite National Park .

For the remainder of the day, you'll wander through the incredible, looming forest of Sequoia trees and visiting the Grizzy Giant, Yosemite's largest Sequoia Tree. Your guide will customize the day based on your interests and abilities.

They look forward to teaching and guiding you in these spectacular locations as well as getting to know you.
