It took longer than planed to get the hire car and to drive to Mariposa, but driving across California was fun. We stuck around in Mariposa for a bit and, after checking into our rooms at the River Rock Inn, we headed off to Mariposa Grove to see some Redwoods.
When we go back to Mariposa we had missed dinner at the hotel, so we went to a family pizza place down the road. Then we went back to the hotel for some amazing live rock music outdoors in the warm evening and several beers with slices of orange in (which were surprisingly excellent). Then Mart and I went off to take some photos of the town at midnight. We found a floodlit Jesus statue in a graveyard, which made for an atmospheric photo.
