“The Explorer works by determining your location and then guides you on a tour describing your surroundings and their significance. Visitors learn about fires and floods, learn about wildlife, and meet historic figures that changed Yosemite Valley first hand. There is even a trivia game using guide posts along the path to unlock secret messages. Explorers are available through the Yosemite Valley Visitors Center. The tour costs $9.95 for adults and $7.95 for kids (3-12).
