Podcast Feature: Yosemite National Park

We are excited and humbled by the opportunity to be a featured guest on Everybody's National Parks' Yosemite podcast series. We've been following them on Instagram (@EverybodysNationalParks) and listening in to their bi-weekly podcasts for almost two years. We love the variety of their topics and the details in their content. They bring on park naturalists, rangers, geologists, and more to dig into the nuances of each park.


Have a listen below and enjoy some travel tips for planning a trip to Yosemite. We hope this inspires you to visit another one of our favorite places. The right planning goes a long way.
