In 1886 the Yosemite Stage and Turnpike Co. owned by Henry Washburn started daily stage service from Raymond to Wawona and on to Yosemite Valley. The next day only the wealthy could afford the $45 round trip exiting the train at Wildcat Junction aka Raymond and boarding a stage that would change horses at Summit House, Grub Gulch, and the Gambetta Mine which is directly behind you. Mine tailings are visible on the mountain. Then on to the Ahwahnee Tavern, the midway point of the trip for a cool rest and great lunch. Then on to Miami Lodge for a fresh team of horses and ending at the Wawona Hotel after a 12 hour stage ride. Completion of the Yosemite Valley Railroad in 1906 and later Highway 140 put an end to the stage runs.
