My parents live out in Oakdale which is a couple of hours from Yosemite . . . I was up there for a couple of years and Yosemite became one of my favorite places on earth! Had a chance to ride thru with my dad after he bought a motorcycle a couple of years back, and have camped and hiked, but I can only imagine the views, trails, nature, etc that you'd be able to experience wheeling in those areas. Let me know if you ever hear of a run up there and I'll see if I can take some time off from work, and maybe hit the trails for a couple of days and chill with the folks for a couple as well!
