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.
