In March 2014, I joined a few other women from my college sorority on a spring break trip to Yosemite National Park. A far cry from the crowded beaches of Mexico, Yosemite was just the outdoor playground we were looking for. We hiked to the peak of Yosemite Falls and took a day trip to Hetch Hetchy. While we didn’t climb Half Dome (we’re saving that for a five-year reunion) or scale El Capitan, it was a great week in one of the United States’ most beautiful National Parks. Enjoy!

Before I tell you about the tour itself, here are some quick facts about the Northern Territory:
