Volcano - A Brief Visit
I'm going to be in Pioneer Saturday, so I think I'll stop by Volcano to see what it looks like. It's not a volcano. The miners just thought it looked like a volcano, so that's what they named the town.
It has a nice old hotel from 1865. I'll have to take a look at it. And it's just 3 miles off the road between Jackson & Pioneer, so why not.

2. Well, I went. Nice little tiny old mining tourist town, with a nice old
bar (I don't drink) a nice little wine bar (I didn't even go in) and a bar/attached to the hotel/restaurant. I went in then decided to eat in the bar. More people to talk to.
So I had a nice burger and a lot of good conversation with other visitors and bikers.
It's called Whiskey Flat/the Lost Biker Bar.
Sopiago Springs passed Pioneer was nice. Totally out in the middle of the forest, woods, trees, very little road, few, well really no people.
So, Thursday night was Oakhurst. Friday into Yosemite, accompanied by the two Ducatis, then out to Evergreen Lodge for lunch. My buddies took off for the west and south, then home. I went out to Hetch Hetchy, and came back to 120 on Camp Mather road. Nice. Total drop off of about 3000 feet, narrow, no center line, no guard rail, don't look, or the bike will go where you look.
Today from Pioneer to Visalia thru' Yosemite, with a stop for a photo at Tunnel View.
One bar in Volcano had a nice motorcycle neon sign. But no bikes and no bikers.
So three photos. Hetch Hetchy, Volcano, and Tunnel View.
