Mariposa? You simply CANNOT be in that neighborhood without visiting
Yosemite National Park. You just can't! My first visit there, due to
the vagaries of my business trip to San Diego and then Fresno, I
couldn't get to Yosemite when planned. So, I got up at 3AM or so (in
Fresno) and set off for Yosemite. I just happened to come through the
tunnel (between the park entrance and Yosemite Valley) right at
sunrise...just in time to watch the sun rising above El Capitan and
Half Dome. That was in 1984 or so and I am still awestruck by the
unbelievable natural beauty of the place!! You HAVE to go there.

My recollection from having been on it once and driven part of it is
that California state route 49 between Mariposa and Coulterville is
the crookedest road in the country. Even after they straightened it,
so we were told. Not for the faint of heart. Of course, we did it
in a borrowed Ford LTD wagon loaded with music gear and four people.
Speaking of adding time, don't forget that when you go from the west
coast to the east it takes three hours longer than you might
calculate. I guess it must be the prevailing winds or something
because it takes so much less time going the other way.
