We spent a pleasant Thursday evening at the Visalia Elks, and Friday morning we moved to Hanford to see my sisters. We talked about how to get our “ducks in a row” regarding the mineral rights we own in Oklahoma. We now have an attorney helping us.
Saturday morning Alice and I headed north to Yosemite Lakes TTN, located on Hwy 120 east of Groveland. Our mapping program said the most direct route was to travel up Hwy 41 to the entrance to Yosemite, then go back down Hwy 120 to our destination. It was significantly shorter, and Alice said the views were spectacular. I don't know. I kept my white knuckles on the steering wheel as we climbed and curved through the foothills of the Sierras. We saved some miles, and maybe some minutes, but we were both exhausted when we arrived. I recommend going to Manteca and coming in from the west.
The TTN camp is very pleasant on the side of the South Fork of the Tuolumne River. They plant trout on Tuesday and Thursday, so I will buy a fishing license and try to pay for it with the fish I catch. We plan to visit Yosemite several times during the two weeks we will spend here.
The downside is that we are three miles away from phone and Internet service. We do have a good satellite TV signal.
