Hwy 49 between Mariposa and Coulterville is about 15 miles of curvy cliff hugging road the locals call the Little Dragon. It's a good one. I enjoy going south to north. Priest Grade is a different road. It's the old Hwy 120 that goes from Moccasin to Big Oak Flat. It also was the stagecoach road. I imagine it knee deep in mud with highwaymen relieving you of your shiny possessions..
Mark enjoyed every second of Friday's ride until he suddenly stopped short of Oakhurst. You see in Texas the roads are straight. On our roads they are curvy and often times suck you in and spit you out. I hope Mark joins us.
