My buddy (FJ09) and I (1290SAdv) took Friday off and did a little ADV jaunt into Yosemite from the Bay Area. I had always wanted to take dirt roads in AND out of the park.... it is possible! Navigate your way to Smith Station Rd and Greely Hill Rd and head east... You'll find yourself here soon enough: There were quite a few ruts on parts of the road which made for slow going for my FJ09 buddy. The KTM just plowed up everything as one would expect :). We came upon a rock slide. Someone put a "rock slide ahead" sign about 200 feet before the rock slide, which seemed pretty pointless. I was 50% sure I could ride right over, so I did the responsible thing and just walked my bike over :). Passed this beautiful waterfall... This takes you through the little community of Foresta then back on 120. We got a heated tent cabin at Half Dome Village (it will always be Curry!). Got a martini and lunch at the Ahwahnee, hiked a few miles, then bought a bottle of whiskey and found a group of Aramark employees to spend a few hours chatting and drinking with. Saturday morning we woke up early and headed to Glacier Point for this shot: From there, we continued down 41 to Chowchilla Mountain Rd. You basically ride the little narrow golf cart path across from the Wawona hotel and it turns into Chowchilla Mountain. Popped out along 49 and rode back to San Jose!
