Tenaya Lodge at Yosemite has exciting news. Coming Summer 2019, 50 new “Explorer Cabins” will open. Experience all the mountains have to offer from the privacy of your own modern, two-bedroom cabin. Come together with your family and other guests at the 1,800-square-foot Explorer Lounge and communal firepits. Nestled among a fishing pond and creek, you’ll feel like you’re miles from civilization.
Thankfully the physical impact left behind is incredibly minimal within Yosemite National Park’s boundary. Tourists can enjoy all the icons they have been dreaming to see, and most will not even be aware the event took place as they take in the famous jaw-dropping scenery.
