We left Bridgeport and headed south to Lee Vining passing by Mono Lake. Forgot thats where the Tufa's are.
Passed through Lee Vining and couldnt wait to get to Tioga Pass. We over shot the turnoff but soon turned back. Found out later that the chef at the servo/roadhouse at the turnoff was one of the top chef's from L A i think it was. Didnt like the city and came out to Lee Vining. Would have been nice try his cooking.
Tioga Pass. What a place. We were so lucky to be there while it was open. If we ever get back again, we will spend at least a whole day just in the Pass. I have a picked a few photo's for this section because i cant do it justice with words.
HOW DOES A TREE GROW UP THERE?
SO MUCH ROCK.
Tioga Pass runs into Yosemite National Park. Another place we enjoy visiting.
When we first saw the name Yosemite, we couldnt say it right. Thought it said Yoh si might. lol.
There is so much beautiful scenery to see in Yosemite. Some great walks to the waterfalls.
WOULD HAVE BEEN NICE TO GO FOR A PADDLE.
I knew i was waiting a long time to do this report for a reason hahaha. Probably a day or two ago, a couple of climbers climbed up the face of El Capitan. You may have seen it on the news. I was waiting for the climb to be done. :) True. I wouldnt tell a lie hehehe.
We had a fantastic day driving in through Tioga Pass and into Yosemite National Park. Tioga Pass is a must see if its open. We have been to Yosemite before but its still a great place to visit. Great walks and waterfalls. The fast running streams are so clear, its relaxing to just sit watch them.
We headed off out of the park and headed towards Fresno. More later.
Stay tuned. Keith
