Ride to Yosemite 580>120>49>41

Ready to roll...

I left Friday morning at about 8am and arrived at the cabin at around 1:30. I took things easy and stopped for photos

We explored the valley on Saturday and then did a short hike Sunday morning. I left Wawona at 1:30 to ride back up to the Valley and take highway 140 out of the park. I arrived back in San Francisco around 6:30 or 7pm.
