          any two to three night vacancies from last week in may through june? my hiking partner louise from Reno, (I am from Melbourne Beach, FL) was impressed after speaking to you. I read the reviews and the fact that you are close to Yosemite certainly sold me. If you get a cancellation, we would certainly try to fill such an opening. I have yet to make an airline reservation but my schedule is flexible. we are both retired. thanks for your consideration. bill mcgill
