If you are reading this, I would like to thank you for finding us on our newly designed YExplore website and blog. I woke up with the sound of “Radioactive” by Imagine Dragons in my head. While I don’t quite think it’s quite the apocalypse, it is a revolution of sorts. We are calling it the Adventure Blog and were formerly the Yosemite Photo Blog. We still plan on being Yosemite-centric, but you will see some new adventures listed on this site now and some more to possibly come in the next 24 months so stay tuned. What we will continue to provide is photo driven adventures in Yosemite and beyond. Please stick around, bookmark the new blog site, and come back often. Oh yea, there’s one more thing. Please be patient as you poke around some of the new features of the website. It is a work in progress, and we could only build out the framework before migrating the entire site. You will notice some of the older pages are still alive so enjoy them while they’re around, but this is definitely the New Age! Thank you all.
Today is April 21, and we all should celebrate the life of a man who helped shape the modern conservation movement. He influenced congress, lobbied presidents, and was a major influence on the shaping of our National Parks. Happy Birthday John Muir from your former home in Yosemite Valley. Please read further if you are interested in learning about more thoughts and reflections from holiday periods at Yosemite, including Thanksgiving.
