Mariposa is just outside of Yosemite. They call it the gateway to Yosemite. This area has sweeping views, rolling hills, and trails without the park crowds. We ziplined at Yosemite Zipline Adventures off of Highway 140. They take you on a zipline tour of increasingly longer and faster lines, so you alternately walk a little and zipline. The guides were great and made the whole experience even more fun. One of them no longer works there because he moved away and shacked up with my friend, but the other guides were cool too. There are also cute dogs that live on the property.
I don’t remember how long the tour was, but it feels like we were there a few hours. Afterward we drove up the road to the Mariposa downtown area to watch some parade they were having and walk around the shops. Just another chill spot in Cali.
