While still in Fresno, I got up early and headed out the door by 9 AM,
for the Farmers Market from 7 AM to noon. ( 9AM and out the door is early for me!)
There is a stand that had the best tamales. I would get up early every Saturday morning to get those tamales if I lived in Fresno.
I love going to Farmers Markets to get the local fresh produce.
Just some of the produce that we got. Cilantro, purple cauliflower, (which was yummy and beautiful to look at), carrots, and oranges.
We left Fresno, CA. and took Hwy. 41 North toward Bass Lake, CA.
The green foothills turned to rocky, green foothills and a few trees.
Then we did some steep inclines.
Picture of Oakhurst, CA. below. The decent going into Oakhurst, was a long steep grade. " Joe are you using the Jake Brake?", is now my famous line.
Joe said he was glad we were not going out this way. We would burn a lot of diesel going up that mountain.
Oakhurst, CA. is located 8 miles south of Bass Lake, where we were headed.
Oakhurst is where we come when we needed groceries, while at Bass Lake. But on this drive, we drove on through Oakhurst and back up another mountain.
North of Oakhurst, we enter into the Sierra National Forest once again.
The drive coming in, is narrow and windy, and a bit confusing. Drive slow, and follow the signs. Registration office in picture above, as we approach.
