In this episode, I talk about the wonderful things you can do in and around Yosemite National Park.
The communities and businesses surrounding Yosemite have suffered this summer due to the Ferguson fire, but the fire is contained, and Yosemite National Park is OPEN once again. We’re revitalizing the tourism by promoting our area with the #YosemiteNOW campaign. On and off the web.
