Is Oct. 25-29 too late (cold) to take this trip?

My husband and I are going on the June 14-18 trip? Does anyone have a suggestion of something else to see in the area either before or after the trip? Mary

Is anyone going to Yosemite on May 8 and wants to share a ride from Fresno airport ?

Greg Seeger Oct 07, 2013 at 11:32 AM

Susan, thanks for your note, as I'm sure they will do that again, if the Park is still closed next week.

My trip was scheduled to start on October 6. On October 3, I heard from Road Scholar that they were offering hikes outside the park or a full refund. I thought that was fair and appreciated it. I chose the refund and will visit the park with Road Scholar next year.

Hi Susan, I wanted to let you know that we do offer the Hiking Yosemite program 4 times in 2014. Our first date available is May 4-8. This is a very popular program, with a maximum of 20 participants per program. We often experience a wait list about 1 month prior to the program departure. I'd love for you to join us this year if you are able.
