California offers some of the most diverse and spectacular scenery you can find in America, and for those that appreciate a good drive, you can see much of it. Yosemite National Park is one of the most breathtaking of the area, and you can drive right through it on the highest pass, Tioga Pass. You’ll begin this 120 mile journey from Oakhurt by CA-41. You’ll first travel through the Sierra National Forest and will quickly enter Yosemite National Park. Almost immediately after entering the area, you’ll want to stop at Mariposa Grove, where you can explore the Sequoia forests. These massive and extremely old trees are truly humbling to see first hand. From there the road will get windy as it cruises through the National Forest, making for a fun way to test your car’s performance. You’ll pass several pull offs where you can appreciate the view and stretch your legs if you’re so inclined. Once you reach CA-120, take that road as it is Tioga Pass. Quickly you’ll reach Olmstead Point where you can experience some of the most sweeping views in the area. You’ll end your journey at Mono Lake, a salt water lake, worth spending some time.
Embark on your scenic journey in a vehicle that will make the drive all the more pleasant like a 2014 E63 AMG 4MATIC Sedan from Mercedes-Benz of Encino. This high-performance Sedan will keep you comfortable and safe while allowing you to really let loose and see how Mercedes does it.
