As we visited the park, we noticed the meadows off 120 and stopped to admire their beauty. It might be nothing to you, but yes, they are gorgeous, if you are into nature.

I enjoyed Tuolumne more than the Valley. Less crowded, and the views are stunning. It's also much cooler. The power was out when we visited, but thankfully we had a picnic lunch. Be sure to do the Soda Springs walk. We had to forgo one...More

I don't remember it being all that winding, but remember, you will on the Tioga Pass Road. That goes into the mountains. The speed limit is quite slow, so that might help a bit. As for the cabins, I cannot help you on... More
