Vincente flats is a good destination for an easy one nighter. Beautiful morning and afternoon. I definitely want to do it again and go all the way to Cone peak.

Nice place to camp for the night, and a cheaper alternative to camping in the state parks ($22 at the time of writing). Watch out for the poison oak though.
