Our Yosemite National Park base of operations.

We arrived last Monday, May 13th, and stayed a week. It pretty much rained (and snowed) from Tuesday until we left. However, we were able to get in a couple of Yosemite visits and tour which we’ll cover in following posts.

The drive up Highway 140 to Indian Flat RV Park and to Yosemite was absolutely stunning. The Merced River, which parallels much of the highway, was roiling with spring runoff from the mountains . . .


Though our campsite was not far from the highway, the view was . . .

    Wish you could have had better weather.. but glad you did have some good weather time to take in the sights. Cannot get over the price of CA gas! Mary

    We were there over Memorial Day 9 years ago and it snowed so hard that they closed the southern road into the park!

    • It’s an “interesting” drive up to the campground.

      • We stayed nearby once without our trailer, at Cedar Lodge. Are you talking about where you have to stop for the one-way traffic?
