Tioga Pass

Wawona Hotel Yosemite

Half Dome (in distance) Yosemite

When back up 395 to Highway 120, then over Tioga pass (elevation 9945) thru the upper part of Yosemite, turning towards Wawona (and the Wawona Hotel) then took highway 49 north to Jackson and cut over on highway 88 to Liberty Road abd back home.

Driving through Yosemite is very pretty ride, but beware of speeding tourists. As we got closer the the valley, there were numerous signs indicating where at bear had been hit by a vehicle.

Note:In my humble opinion, Highway 49 between Oakhurst and Sonora pretty much sucks. A series of 20-30 mph turns for several miles makes this segment r e a l l y slow going.
