THE WINNERS WITH THE MOST VOTES:
1st Place: Olivia S.
Sunrise from Glacier Point
Prize: 2-night stay
OS: “Spectacular morning at Glacier Point in late September. First time in the park did not disappoint!”
RC: The saying always holds true that the early bird catches the worm. In this case the worm being this view!
Jack the Rush Creek Ranger
Prize: 1-night stay
EM: “Jack is my service dog, but he’s also a local guide and certified junior explorer! He was ready to show other guests around Rush Creek Lodge & Spa while we were there. He highly recommends the roasted marshmallows while warming up next to the fire pits.”
RC: What a privilege it was to meet a certified junior explorer. He can now add a Rush Creek Ranger badge to his vest!
While we are all pet lovers at Rush Creek, we only allow registered service animals (like Jack!) in or around guest rooms, in vehicles or on property.
Prize: 1-night stay
JA: “Sunset on last day of family trip”
RC: Nothing beats a Sierra sunset. Thank you so much for sharing!
