Day By Day Itinerary:
Day 1
Sunday, 4/24/2022 - Welcome to the Tenaya Lodge!
From our departure points this morning we’ll travel by deluxe motorcoach into California’s fertile Central Valley. Following a morning rest stop and a stop for lunch on your own, we’ll begin our journey from the Central Valley into the foothills of the Sierra Nevada. Here, two miles from the south entrance of Yosemite National Park, situated on 35 secluded acres amongst a noble evergreen forest, is the Tenaya Lodge at Yosemite. We’ll enjoy a two-night stay at this elegant, AAA Four Diamond, mountain retreat that offers an experience that is classic, yet perfectly modern. This full-service resort features an expansive lobby and restaurant offering a wide range of cuisine. Enjoy the balance of the evening at leisure with dinner on your own.
Day 2
Monday, 4/25/2022 - Yosemite National Park
Following an included breakfast at the Lodge, we’ll be joined by a local guide onboard as we enter Yosemite National Park, a majestic land embracing a spectacular tract of mountain-and-valley scenery in the Sierra Nevada. Preserved as a National Park in 1890, Yosemite harbors a grand collection of waterfalls, meadows and forests along with some of the most majestic sights in the world due in part to its unique, glacier-shaped cliffs and rock faces. Our destination: Yosemite Valley. This eight mile long geologic marvel is a 4,000-foot deep trough lined by towering cliffs and glacially sculpted, polished rock, and is the prized jewel of Yosemite National Park. Although glacially carved valleys with similar features exist elsewhere in the world, none can compete with what legendary naturalist John Muir called “Incomparable Valley.” At Tunnel View we’ll get our first view of the spectacular Yosemite Valley including one of the west’s most photographed landmarks, Half Dome. Opposite Half Dome, towering 3,593 feet above the Yosemite Valley floor, El Capitan is the undisputed king of the granite monoliths – in fact it’s earth’s largest single piece of granite! We’ll continue to the 620-foot tall Bridalveil Fall, the often times windswept waterfall that tumbles down a granite face beneath Cathedral Rocks. This time of year you’ll hear the thundering water before you even see it! This afternoon, enjoy time at leisure for browsing and lunch on your own in Yosemite Village. Later, join your local guide on a leisurely walk to the base of thunderous Yosemite Falls. Tumbling down an enormous rock face just west of the village, Yosemite Falls is impressive not so much in water volume but the sheer height from which it falls. Split into three sections, the cascade plunges 2,425 feet and is the highest waterfall in North America and fifth highest on the planet! We return to the Tenaya Lodge at Yosemite in the late afternoon with the balance of the evening at your leisure.
Breakfast
Day 3
Tuesday, 4/26/2022 - Sugar Pine Railroad, Fresno, Journey Home
After an included breakfast at the Lodge, we’ll travel the short distance to the Yosemite Mountain Sugar Pine Railroad for a memorable ride through the Sierra Nevada Forest’s majestic tall trees. This historic, three-foot narrow gauge steam train with open cars allows for stunning views and a trip back in time as you are transported on the same route that logging trains used to travel through the Sierra Nevada. We’ll then travel to Fresno and enjoy an included traditional Basque lunch at a locals’ favorite. This memorable meal includes fresh bread, homemade soup, a variety of sides, fried chicken, charbroiled lamp chops, ice cream and house wine and is a memorable finale to our spectacular journey. We continue south towards Southern California arriving back at our drop-off points this evening with images of giant granite cliffs, majestic waterfalls and the peaceful meadows of Yosemite National Park forever ingrained in our minds.
