We spent a few days in Oakhurst, CA, which is north of Fresno, about 17 miles from the south entrance for Yosemite National Park.
We took some day hikes around Oakhurst and Bass Lake. We also took one day trip into Yosemite going as far as Wawona. Sadly the Mariposa grove of giant Sequoias is currently closed for restoration work but we enjoyed the visit to Wawona, home to the Big Trees Lodge.
