ddominic here; If you are not on a new looking bike you some time begged you way in. I did that on a gl 500, even though you are entering a national park. The is road is public road. don't do it on a touring bike [$$$$$$] do it on a beater.

I think my Harley would qualify since it is all dinged up, never washed, and full of black duct tape !!!
Tthen again, I have a senior pass,
But I do like to see someone else out there as cheap as I am !! 🙂

I'm with you Cowboy. Lived in CA a total of 20 years and you couldn't pay me to go to Yosemite with those crowds.

I rode to Wawona day before yesterday to "get" the covered bridge there (I am riding to all the California covered bridges this year, just for fun!). I got in on my senior's pass, but noticed that the regular fee for a bike is now $15! :O

I once talked to a State Trooper at a gas station in Mariposa on a holiday weekend and he asked if was heading into Yosemite. I said 'no' and he said, 'good' because it was a 4 1/2 hour wait to get into park. Ouch.

NOW though is a pretty good time. We were up on Glacier Point a couple weekends ago and it was gorgeous. The cool air was clear as a bell and I got some of the best photographs. And while the place is never empty, the people there weren't enough to constitute a crowd. It was a great experience.

Right now everything is open in the park EXCEPT Tioga Pass. So go see Glacier Point, enjoy Yosemite Valley, Bridal Veil Falls had a pretty good flow going over them in spite of the drought. And of course the roads in and out of the park; CA-41, 120, 140 are an absolute delight.

We stayed at the BW in Oakhurst. That's going to be a nice 3FC stop. Good restaurant / bar on the property. And don't miss getting a picture of the redwood Miss Liberty statute out front.
