Alaska 2013, Day 12, Yosemite to San Fran
Thursday June 13, 2013
They say there was a bear in the campground the last couple nights. I heard the neighbors dog bark and saw lots of flashlights but did not see any bear. No bear sightings so far.
Left this morning for San Francisco. Winding road out of the park. It gets drier pretty quick. By the time you hit Merced it is flat and dry.
Merced is where the fruit (cherries, strawberries, peaches, plums apricots) and nuts (pistachios and almonds) are grown. We stopped for fuel and tacos near Dos Palos. We stopped for fruit outside Los Banos. Plums and appricots were $1/lb, $3 for 2 lb of Ranier cherries. Traffic got bad just north of San Jose, rush hour. We had traffic all the way in to San Francisco. We got into Candlestick RV Park (where we stayed in 96) around 7:00. 6 hours to go ~ 250 mi.
