Heads up: you will once again need reservations to visit Yosemite National Park this summer, whether its for day-tripping, camping or lodging. But no big deal, just keep checking on protocols and procedures so you don’t travel all that way just to be locked out. At any rate, you don’t even need to enter the park to get a eyeful of scenery in Mariposa County, which is bisected by highway 140 leading to the park’s El Portal entrance. more »

The English proverb ‘let sleeping dogs lie” might have been the right advice back in the 13th century, but certainly doesn’t apply when your pup wakes up in a beautifully appointed room at Yosemite’s Tenaya Lodge or in the privacy of one of 50 two-bedroom dog-friendly Explorer Cabins, surrounded by wide open spaces. more »

Ruff-ing It in Yosemite National Park

Ruff-ing It in Yosemite National Park

“Is Yosemite dog-friendly?” That’s one of the questions most asked by DogTrekker readers. The answer depends on how “Yosemite” is defined. We at DogTrekker define it not only as inside the park, but dog-passionate Mariposa County, affectionately known as the "Mother of Counties" because it initially encompassed one-fifth of the state of California, Including Yosemite National Park.
 
Inside the park, leashed dogs are allowed on most fully paved roads, sidewalks and bicycle paths, unless there is a sign that specifically forbids them. more »

Sacramento

Sacramento’s restaurant scene, if not in full bloom, is at least budding again.

Here’s a sampling of some of our favorites. Pay them a visit with your pup and help save SAC restaurantsmore »
