Sierra Vista Scenic Highway — a ‘secret Yosemite’

Stashed in: California, Out of Doors, National Parks

I love the National Parks as much as any American, but there are a lot of good reasons to love the National Forests too.  Often they are right next door, cheaper, a lot less crowded, and just subject to far fewer rules (e.g. dogs, fires, swimming, backpacking).

This scenic byway is near Yosemite and has similar views of the Sierra batholith, but it's more remote and less Disneylandy.
