A Weekend Trip to the Sierra Nevada Mountains
It is nice to experience motorcycling in different areas of the country every now and then. I was able to do just that a couple of weeks ago. It is a wonderful change of pace to ride in the mountains.
I was able to ride Yosemite National Park. What beautiful scenery! Unfortunately I picked a very crowded time of year for my visit as it was bumper to bumper traffic. After fighting the crowds for half a day, we made our way out of the traffic jams and on toward Tioga Pass.
Descending from Tioga Pass to Lee Vining, we were stopped from our original route plan due to wild fires crossing our route. With some hasty googling of motels we were able to secure rooms for the night 60 miles out of the way.
The next day we rendezvoused with the rest of our group and hit the back roads to bag a couple more of the mountain passes.
I highly recommend sampling all the different types of riding available in the US.
