en route to Yosemite--Part III: Tioga Pass and Tuolumne Meadows

(Ellery Lake, elevation 9,538 feet, July 2006)

(Tuolumne Meadows, elevation 8,775 feet, eastern entrance of Yosemite National Park, 2006)

On the next leg of our trip we drove from Mono Lake over the Tioga Pass to the eastern entrance to Yosemite. Tuolumne Meadows, the largest sub-alpine meadow in the High Sierra, is 60 miles from Yosemite Valley. A gorgeous, lush place with many hiking and backpacking trails.
