“Yosemite Valley, to me, is always a sunrise, a glitter of green and golden wonder in a vast edifice of stone and space.”  Ansel Adams

Autumn colors come late to Yosemite National Park and the first of November is usually the peak.  Join adventure photographer Joshua Huber on a 3 day photography hiking tour of Yosemite.  Summer crowds have died down and we’re free to take our time on the trails.  It’s a bit cooler but Glacier Point and Tioga Roads are still open, so we have access to all areas of the park.  We’ll spend our days hiking and photographing the Valley from the floor as well as the Rim where some of the most exquisite photos are taken. Don’t worry about the pace. We’re all photographers; we’ll all lag behind together.  We’ll lay our heads at Curry Village under the shadow of Half Dome where luxury camping was invented. And don’t worry about the food; we’ll take care of that too.

  • This trip is great for photographers of all experience levels.  Don’t worry if you don’t know what all those fancy terms mean because you soon will.
  • You’ll experience some great remote hikes where we can get away from the crowds with like minded people.
  • Moderate all day hiking with about a 1,000 feet in elevation gain and loss.
  • Our guides have extensive knowledge about Yosemite’s historic and geological history and would love to spot a few animals for you.

Spring Trip Highlights

  • 3 days – 2 nights
  • Thundering waterfalls and granite cliffs
  • A fun-filled long weekend getaway that feels much longer
  • Expert photography instruction in Ansel’s back yard.
  • Gourmet food throughout the trip.
  • Enjoy hikes that get you away from the crowds.

In the Spring is when Yosemite National Park comes alive with waterfalls and wildlife.  Join adventure photographer Joshua Huber on a 3 day photography hiking tour of Yosemite.  The winter snows have started melting and some of the lower trails to Vernal Fall and Columbia Point to explore.  We’ll spend our day’s hiking and photographing the valley from the floor hoping for some great cloud formations. Don’t worry about the pace we’re all photographers and will lag behind together.  We’ll lay our heads at Curry Village under the shadow of Half Dome where luxury camping was invented and don’t worry about the food we’ll take care of that too.

Easy

Every Active Tours trip is designed to appeal to a wide variety of interests and fitness levels. We know your pace may vary from one day to the next-and your traveling companion’s may differ somewhat from yours. So we present a range options, and each day you decide exactly what and how much you want to do.

On this trip we’ll hike and drive to some of the lesser known photographic gems of Yosemite.  On the Autumn tour we’ll spend a day hiking and photographing from the rim where as the Spring tour we’ll focus more on the water plummeting down from the rim.  You’d rather kick back and day dream?  Sounds good to us we know the perfect bench!
