2018 Yosemite Ride.
« on: June 25, 2018, 01:26:47 PM »

2018 Yosemite National Park

I was so pleased to find out at the last moment that Andy Kasik, Marty Olguin, and Roger Lane would be joining us for this ride. More friends make it more enjoyable.

On Thursday the 21st Denise and I rode out early. We met up with my cousin Alan Paz in Livermore, then headed on down The 99 into the San Joaquin Valley. In Merced we met up with John Shimada for breakfast. From there we did a quick stop in Mariposa for some ice cream, perfect on a hot summer day.

Leaving Mariposa I had to stop at Ben-Hur road and take a picture. I’m not sure if the community was named after one of my favorite movies, but I wanted a picture. We made it to Oakhurst had lunch and joined up with James and Cynthia. Cynthia had just bought a 1999 Porsche Boxster and they would be enjoying the ride with the rag top down.

The next morning, we set off to explore the valley floor. We took the mandatory photos at the overlook, and stopped by Bridal Veil Falls.

Later we had lunch at the hotel formerly known as the Ahwahnee.

That evening we dined back in Oakhurst with the rest of the incoming crew, Marty, Andy and Roger.

Saturday morning, we all met up at the gas station in Wawona, from there we rode down into the valley and headed over to Lee Vining.

Along the way we stopped for the obligatory overlook pictures.

The weather was perfect, sunny, clear, dry with temps in the 80s. We took a break at Tuolumne meadows, before continuing to Lee Vining.
