No Glacier Point this year
I took a pre ride up to the park to see how far the construction had gone. I had heard reports that it was still west of the Glacier Point turn off and I was hoping to take 140/41 all the way up with out any problems. Unfortunately, we found that the road turns to gravel just outside the tunnel, unsuitable for taking a large group up to the point. So, my plans to bring Friendship Ride back to the point have been thwarted. 🙁 Not to worry, we will be running the standard Friendship Ride loop and save the trip up to the point for another year.
Here are a few pics from the trip, as you can see, gas prices in El Portal are pretty expensive, the road conditions on the way to the point, and the yummy treat waiting for us at Happy Burger on the way back.
