Yosemite National Park, in the Sierra Nevada mountain ranges in California, is one of our most well known National Parks. In this episode, we explore the huge cliffs, waterfalls, and trees that John Muir called his church and home. We’ll hike to Vernal Falls, check out a bit of the John Muir Trail, and backpack to Upper Yosemite Falls and North Dome, and see beautiful views of Half Dome.

    Fun Fun!!!!
    Lucky enough to watch this at work during some dead time.

  2. imetr8r on November 13, 2022 at 9:31 am

    Robbie’s analysis about computers is correct. Computers have made it possible for each of us to do more, thus one must be more productive to keep apace with everyone else. This is the curse of the CPU.

  3. Robert Morales on November 13, 2022 at 9:31 am

    I’m not a big fan of this guy tearing up mushrooms and eating the berries and pulling up the dried grass. It doesn’t feel very "leave no trace".

    You should have never put your shitty buts in a pristine pool how selfish and always pack your shit out or guess where it ends up? In the nearest water source, how dare you piss and deficate everywhere and spoil it all for the others, always pack out your poop

  7. Steven Piper on November 13, 2022 at 9:37 am

    This and Pictured Rocks in Michigan are my two favorites so far. Keep up the good work!

  8. Lex Boogie on November 13, 2022 at 9:37 am

    Okay the editing……. is a bit much.😂😂 I’m dying at the Naruto opening. Good job though, better than anything I can do.

  9. wholly mary on November 13, 2022 at 9:39 am

    Rivers are meant for bathing in not pristine pools

  10. goodmorninggil w on November 13, 2022 at 9:39 am

    Lots of good, but I was inspired to comment by the toilet paper scene. That was a bitchin. Kudos to you guys for being practical on a subject such as that. And the doing your business camera shot…😂 top notch. I commend you on your self-confidence sir.

  11. Cris Coleman on November 13, 2022 at 9:39 am

    What an awesome place. Seeing photographs doesn’t come close to the views you guys showed. And I’m sure seeing the views you guys just showed doesn’t even come close to actually being there. Unfortunately, it’s a long way from my back yard, so I’ll have to be satisfied with this amazing video. The only disappointment I have about the whole thing is that it wasn’t in two or three parts like you guys were initially at least considering. Well, you said something like you’d have enough stuff for two or three parts. Close enough for me. Thanks for the adventure.

    come to Kuala Lumpur https://youtu.be/39FZe422qxs

  13. Lex Boogie on November 13, 2022 at 9:45 am

    It makes me so sad seeing how many people are on these trails. You can’t get away from a crowd anymore these days. But hey, I’m sure everybody feels the same way.

  14. Stuart Donald on November 13, 2022 at 9:47 am

    What an amazing trip.

  15. linda richie on November 13, 2022 at 9:48 am

  17. Matt Wigg on November 13, 2022 at 9:50 am

    This whole video is incredible

  18. Frog Anon on November 13, 2022 at 9:51 am

    13:20 National park trail Bluetooth speaker zombies noooo. 😭

  19. Jeffrey Maki on November 13, 2022 at 9:51 am

    All plants in national parks are protected!! It is not a farm! You you do not collect and eat them!! Millions visit Yosemite, and your actions destroy the experience for others and degrade the willderness!!! Read up on wilderness ethics!!! Leave only footprints (on the trail) and take only pictures!! PLEASE TAKE THIS VIDEO DOWN! IT ENCOURAGES VANDALISM OF OUR NATURAL BEAUTY!!

  20. LibertyNJustice4All on November 13, 2022 at 9:51 am

    I just stumbled on your channel yesterday, and can’t get enough of these documentaries/journey. Love your down to Earth approach on everything. Thanks for all your hard work, it will payoff soon. Love & Light.

  21. The Silures Scribe on November 13, 2022 at 9:54 am

    Just t a quick note to say that I’m really enjoying the content. You guys are sweet, polite and you don’t throw expletives out there every five seconds. I appreciate that. Great vids, please keep generating videos!

  22. ryan on November 13, 2022 at 9:55 am

    Never eat any mushroom you are not totally sure of, they are extremely poisonous and have killed many people who thought they knew

  25. Wallis Back on November 13, 2022 at 9:57 am

    Top 3 favorite places on Earth! Thanks for bringing us along on your journey

  26. Amy Ward on November 13, 2022 at 9:57 am

    This video was amazing! I could tell about 3 minutes into the video that you guys were true nature appreciators. Love the sense of humor and the songs! Also the scenery was amazing! Thank you so much!

  27. Gretchen Billings on November 13, 2022 at 9:59 am

    you were on badly? thats just up the road from me😁

  28. Iknowbinary on November 13, 2022 at 9:59 am

    Great friendship, great place, great adventure = great video! Thanks for reminding us that there’s more to life than money!

  29. Warren Smith on November 13, 2022 at 10:00 am

    I’m late to the party 😂 but this is my favorite episode yet

  30. S quisky on November 13, 2022 at 10:01 am

    i would have done psilocybin doses by the fire. it would have been magic.

  31. Sally ann Sinanan on November 13, 2022 at 10:03 am

    I wish I could like this more than once.

  32. Pa Vang on November 13, 2022 at 10:04 am

    The white guy looks like a young version of Bradley Cooper

  33. shaktijane on November 13, 2022 at 10:05 am

    you guys are adorable!

  34. catherine doyle on November 13, 2022 at 10:06 am

    humans are selfish and always want you to listen to their lifes sometimes thiink of the poor folks who never get the chance to see the world or like most people dont care just saying

  35. thinkin outloud on November 13, 2022 at 10:08 am

    Thanks for making this amazing video

  36. G. Photogirl on November 13, 2022 at 10:08 am

    I loved this. I visited Yosemite on December 5th, it was my first time back after 25 years, and it was even more awe inspiring than the first time. I appreciated it so much more. I went off season on purpose, to feel the solitude i needed after living in the concrete jungle of Los Angeles for so long. Yosemite did not disappoint. I cannot wait to go back, and
    B R E A T H E. Your movie made me miss it all the more. Thank you. Thank you. ✌️

  37. jamjamjellyjam1 on November 13, 2022 at 10:09 am

    Bravo!! 👏👏 I love everything about this video!!

  38. Ryne B on November 13, 2022 at 10:10 am

    Permits? Us gov and all those tourists I could only imagine all the trash. Aka humans

  39. goodmorninggil w on November 13, 2022 at 10:11 am

    I’m sure no one gives a shit but I love the there will be blood quote. I believe that quality modern cinema is the new age novel. I am sure that there are arguments against, but if it’s high-quality I stand by my statement

  40. Michael Lam on November 13, 2022 at 10:11 am

    Sounds like Thomas had or was just getting a cold.

  41. Susanne Nerad on November 13, 2022 at 10:12 am

    Oh geez, all the people, glad I went there years ago when it wasn’t so bad, way to many people ruining places, but it is a beautiful place, thanks to Andrew for picking up the ignorant people’s trash

  42. Shadow in the Rain on November 13, 2022 at 10:15 am

    Not sue if this has been explained but why Andrew is so good at plants?

  43. goodmorninggil w on November 13, 2022 at 10:17 am

    About 40 minutes… Thomas is like a pack mule, Andrew is like a sled dog, I’m like a coyote… I don’t know what that means😂 awesome. That last bit reminds me of the movie good morning Vietnam. One of the Junior members of the radio station says something about a guy licks the sweat off of dead man’s balls, then he says I don’t know what that means, but it sounds very negative to me sir

  44. Teresa P. on November 13, 2022 at 10:17 am

    I’m 65 now and I can’t go climbing mountains anymore not that I could ever climb those like you guys did but just being able to see it from your perspective made it so enjoyable. It was so beautiful too and refreshed my soul just watching it so thank you all very much. We did come out west in the year 2000 from Pennsylvania and spent two weeks mostly driving but we saw 12 national parks and Yosemite was one of them. But we only had one day there so you know we didn’t get to see nearly everything we wanted to. We knew we may never get out there again so we wanted to see as much as we possibly could.

  45. Tinee Johnston on November 13, 2022 at 10:18 am

    It’s 3:15am and I’m still watching, I can’t stop. ❤️❤️❤️

  46. Saunter on November 13, 2022 at 10:19 am

    Can tell you guys are great friends.

  47. PleaseSeatYourself on November 13, 2022 at 10:19 am

    I love that you guys were singing Big Rock Candy Mountains. Lol. I started singing along.

  48. Jersey LTD on November 13, 2022 at 10:23 am

    I hear a lot of people have gone missing there
