en route to Yosemite--Part IV: along Tioga Road

(west on Tioga Road on the way to Yosemite, July 2006)

Past Tuolumne Meadows we wound along Tioga Road (California State Route 120) to Yosemite Valley. To keep entertained Juliana kept a count of the number of waterfalls she saw, from tiny trickles to larger spouts. They totaled over 100.

We came across a place we had stopped a few years earlier--a huge expanse of gray rock. Marmots--big rodent-like critters--hovered in the bushes, waiting for tourist treats. Wherever you go in the Sierras, the scenery is gorgeous!
