Yosemite High Sierra Camp Loop
View Photo Gallery View Trail Journal
The Yosemite High Sierra Camps are a tradition nearly as old as the park itself. They are each located in the beautiful Tuolumne Meadows high country and are a day hike apart.

View from West Point Inn Featured Trail Journal
Once upon a time a train went to the top of Mount Tam and you could take an engine free "gravity railroad" back down. This is a short, easy hike that follows this old gravity railroad path. Getting there is also easy, even if you rely on public transportation.

Strands with Sea Mist Featured Picture Gallery
Dana Strands is a scenic beach in Dana Point. For the moment it is not surrounded by the development which is evident in much of Southern California, though there are plans underway to solve this "problem." It offers a pleasant sandy beach and tide pools during low tide.
