myCampmate is thrilled to let our users know that some of our featured businesses are now offering promotional codes on their business network listing! Some of our business partners came to us asking if they could offer deals exclusive to the myCampmate users. It didn't take us long to say,"Heck Yes!"
The idea has been brewing for some time now and finally we are able to let you know that promo codes are available and tell you how to find them. Read on for where they are located and how it works!
While browsing the great business partners in our business network you may have noticed, towards the bottom of the page, a new box that says "get promo codes now." If not, this is what it looks like:
Once you click on the box you will be told what the promotion is that the park is offering. If it sounds like something you want, simply enter your name, email and any comments or questions in the boxes provided and the promo code will be sent to your email inbox.
You don't have to register, sign up for anything or complete a survey.
It's that easy!
Be sure to give the promo code to the participating business when calling to book a reservation and you are on your way to having fun and saving some money!
We here at myCampmate are all about helping you find the best deal and these promo codes are doing just that!
My girlfriend and I spent our first morning in Yosemite perusing the visitor’s center and getting settled. After deciding what was on our "Must See" list, we decided to take the twenty minute drive to Bridalveil Falls, hoping it would be a wonderful place to stop during the afternoon and enjoy some of the natural beauty that Yosemite offers to its visitors.
Bridalviel Falls lies on the outskirts of the Yosemite Valley and is one of the most prominent waterfalls within the park. I was excited to bring my camera, knowing that I would be there
during one of the best times (sunrise and sunset) to capture the falls at their most beautiful. The light is low and soft, which accentuates the colors that the sunset paints on the landscape.
Being the adventurous souls we are, we decided to try and climb up to the base of the main waterfall. This is not a hard hike, however, in the spring the flow of the falls is at its peak and there may be up to an inch of water on the trail in some spots. There is also a lot of mist from the falls, all year round, that blankets the surroundings with a layer of water. If you plan to climb like we did, keep in mind your own limits, or you may end up like me, wet and injured. The rocks are really slippery when wet and it is easy to lose your footing and fall into the water. Luckily, I escaped with just a wet behind and a bum knee, but in all seriousness people have died trying to do similar things.
After hiking up the falls for awhile, I found some smaller falls about halfway up, behind a large flat top boulder. This small, yet stunning, waterfall collects into a pool before continuing on its way down the falls. I absolutely had to stop and take photographs! The thoughts I had during the hike up about how burdensome the camera and gear were vanished when I was able to take some long exposure shots. In these long exposure shots, the moving water appears “glassy,” further adding to the beauty of the falls.
Hi! I’m Jordan, the newest member of the myCampmate!
I am so excited to get the opportunity to work with the myCampmate team. I am a business student at Sierra College and, as part of my studies, I have chosen to intern at myCampmate so that I may learn how a successful, growing business works. As a part of my internship, I am working with Theresa to create a series of blogs about my recent trip to Yosemite.
I have been a musician for a decade and have always enjoyed photography as well. It is my belief that music and pictures let me express my true voice in a way that spoken language cannot. As such, I’m excited to show you the sheer beauty of Yosemite through not only text but beautiful photos in a series of weekly blogs.
I hope the pictures inspire you to take your own travels to Yosemite and beyond! Enjoy!
