gioglobal's new Merced Page
TRUST me. There's nothing to see in MERCED. Lock your car. Lots of riff-raff settled there because of Castle Air Force Base that closed down a few year ago. It is nearby. I remember years ago, you couldn't drive up or down Hwy 99 without seeing the big droning B52's on flight excersises. They went so slow I would always wonder how they could fly so slow. There's a museum at Castle AFB now, but don't waste your time.
It is the turnoff for Yosemite if you are coming from the North.
