People worldwide are staying home to help prevent the spread of Coronavirus. While you're doing your part, there's plenty of ways to stay entertained. Did you know that you can take a stunning virtual tour of Yosemite from your couch?
If you love surrounding yourself by nature, you can take a hike through some of the park's most stunning natural wonders.
Diving Board, Tuolumne Meadows, the Swinging Bridge, Hetch Hetchy, and Nevada Fall are just a few of the many sights you can see during your excursion.
Virtual Yosemite offers crystal clear images from over 200 locations in the park. Whether you're in the mood to 'hike' along a scenic, shaded trail or catch a bird's eye view from the top, your options are open.
Nearby attractions are also included in the tour, including the Mono Lake and Bodie State Park (aka an abandoned mining town near the Eastern Sierras).
This natural reserve is known for its spectacular tufa towers, towering calcium spires formed by intermixing of fresh springs with alkaline water. The lake is over one million years old!
Why not cozy up on your couch with your favorite cup of tea, a blanket, and settle in?
You can travel to some of the coolest places and get a pretty cool history lesson on their origins too.
It also features ambient audio for some much-needed R&R, maps, and even a geographic index to help you easily navigate the site.
Caption information is provided for every location, so you can write it down on your IRL travel bucket list for later. In the meantime, you'll get to see your state (and many others) like never before.
