    Natural Wonders of San Francisco

    Draped across geological fault lines and perched along the foggy coastline, San Francisco has been undeniably influenced by its natural history and breathtaking environments. Explore the Bay Area's best beaches, forests, and trails through the eyes of a naturalist on this guided excursion. Start your day by crossing the iconic Golden Gate Bridge to reach the Marin Headlands. Walk with your naturalist guide along the dramatic seaside cliffs of the coastal trail and Hawk Hill, and watch for birds of prey soaring over the water or sea lions congregating along the coast. Your next stop is Muir Woods, a grove of towering redwoods where gentle trails are lined by emerald ferns and banana slugs amble along the path. After exploring the forest, head down to Muir Beach to enjoy a local picnic lunch overlooking the blue waters of the Gulf of Farallones, before heading back into the city. Spend your afternoon experiencing San Francisco's amazing parks. Depending on the conditions of the day, you may stroll through the herbal-scented eucalyptus forests of the Lands End Sutro District or among the flutter of birds and butterflies in the serpentine grasslands of the Presidio.

    Natural Wonders of Yosemite (Thu, Sat, Sun)

    Immerse yourself in Yosemite National Park as your naturalist guide brings to life a story of delicate ecosystems, dynamic landscapes, and determined conservationists. Experience Yosemite's mammoth granite domes, ancient giant sequoias, and vibrant wildlife. Visit international icons such as Bridalveil Falls, Yosemite Valley, El Capitan, and Half Dome, and take to the trails on personally-guided interpretative nature walks to experience flora and fauna through the eyes of a naturalist. Your Yosemite experience will be catered to the season and interests of the group. In the spring and early summer, you'll take advantage of peak water levels to mist in the Park's best waterfalls and explore the placid shores of the Merced River. As warmer summer temperatures set in, you'll seek the shade of giant sequoia trees in Tuolumne Grove or the cool alpine waters of Tenaya Lake. When snow blankets Yosemite in the winter, you may take advantage of lighter tourist traffic to spend more time in the heart of Yosemite Valley on a guided snowshoe across the meadows or a walk along the valley floor trail. Discover the place John Muir called, "by far the grandest of all the special temples of nature (he) was ever permitted to enter!"
