Is there a prize for being first to drive over Tioga? I did on 7/27 after skiing two days (really mornings as they are only running lifts for skiers 730-12) at Mammoth. They are open until next Sunday, 8/6 a,lthough snow is getting thinner every day and they could lose more runs by then. On Wednesday after skiing I rode shuttle and did 1+ mile each way hike to Rainbow Falls.
I missed seeing Mikaela although race course marshals did ask me to wait 60 seconds for someone to come down course when run I took required crossing it to get to lifts. Not my picture.
I stopped at busier than I've ever seen before Mono Mobil. Too busy for me to get food, my phone would not connect a call and the website I wanted to watch at 1:30 had problems.
The RAM truck that carries my camper hit 50K miles at beginning of pass.
I stopped at Tenaya Lake where I considered jumping in. I had very short delay getting past one lane section between there and Olmstead Point. I was lucky driving down 395 from Minden, NV as there were a couple of long one lane sections due to construction but I caught up with line of vehicles and did not have to wait.
