O.A.R.S.'s three-hour tours through the gushing environs of Yellowstone Lake invite explorers to mount up for a close encounter with the park's natural splendor and geothermal pyrotechnics on the lake’s West Thumb. Sliding past Lakeshore Geyser, kayakers will explore local hot springs and mud pots as O.A.R.S.'s geologists lead a discussion on the region’s unique makeup. Led by experienced guides who know the lake’s West Thumb like the back of their own west thumb, half-day-trippers typically team up in pairs on one of O.A.R.S.'s two-seater sea kayaks, though singles are available on request for fitness fiends and mysterious loners.

Many people's favorite memories are born at Yosemite as they scale its epic cliffs, spot mule deer among its fields of wildflowers, or feel the mist of waterfalls thundering down from hundreds or thousands of feet above. The expert photographers of YExplore help visitors preserve those memories with shots that truly capture the grandeur of the land, with all its subtle gradations of light and color.

All of Y Explore's guides live in or around Yosemite, and harbor a deep knowledge of the area's geology and natural history. While the crowds line up to ascend El Capitan or look at that one acorn that's pretty big, Y Explore leads its students down paths stamped with far fewer footprints. There, you'll be free to practice the finer points of composition, lighting, perspective, depth of field, and other photographic concepts?resulting in stunning images of landscapes, flora and fauna, and sunsets.

The guttural thrum of an engine stirs the leaves of an oak tree. Over the crest of a rolling hill, motorcycles with goldenrod appear. Miles behind the riders, along blacktop shimmering in the sun’s warmth, Motherlode Motorsports equips patrons with rides, helmets, gas, and experienced guidance. Riders do not need a California motorcycle license to pilot the three-wheeled bikes, giving first-timers the chance to jump right on and glide along the gently ascending hills of Gold Country to San Andreas or up to the nearby Stanislaus National Forest.

Motherlode Motorsports also connects road warriors with an inventory of speedsters from Yamaha, KTM, Suzuki, and Honda, as well as gear from Fox Racing and other brands. Staff experts can offer advice on where to ride as well as tips on survival when confronting a feral camshaft and its cubs in the woods.
