I typed Yosemite National Park in Microsoft's Bing™ Maps search field and this is what I got:

Yosemite National Park according to Bing™ Maps

Rolling on floor laugh

(Good one, Microsoft!)

Are wilderness permits required for an overnight stay in Manteca?

(given the topic, after posting this I thought I'd confirm that the "Manteca" label Bing![tm] applied was actually in Manteca...it is)

Being a resident of Manteca I can tell you our Yosemite Park rivals the other to a great extent.

Just wanted to read more about the ways in which Manteca's Yosemite Park rivals the other one "to a great extent".

Check this out but go the the Bird's Eye View:

You'll notice the similarities in the various labels around the park. We've got most everything.

What happens if I start TOPO! and compare the two?

Edit: and why is 'Tenaya' misspelled on the Bing![tm] map?

That knocks about 380 miles (one way) off my drive to the park.
Must be the S wormhole entrance.
