Long Cold Winter

The last mile on a “Long Cold Winter”

9000+ feet elevation, tall pines, snow, pond and a little Cinderella.

Quick stop along the Tioga Pass just inside Yosemite Valley. If one is ever doing the route from Lake Tahoe to Yosemite, take the I-395 and arrive in the first couple of days they open Tioga Pass. While it maybe a long drive in, the scenery is stunning and offers a photographic opportunity at any and all locations you care to stop alongside the road. We made so many we lost count. Those bears, Coyotes and Elk have it good, damn good.

  6. Thanks Dylan – I hope to again one day soon

    Thanks Mel – Listening to tunes while and taking photos my too passions in life.

    Thanks Stephen – This trip was pretty much the first time I had seen real snow. I had come across some slurry type snow once before while hiking Mt Hood in Oregon back in 1993

    Thanks Kirk – Tioga Pass is incredible, I’ll look at stitching a few more sets of images from this area over the next few weeks. I have around 80% of my images from this trip still to look at processing.

    Thanks Clint – This was one of my personnel favorites as well, partly because of the snow ball fight the wife and I took part in with a few others while at this stop.
