Tioga Pass is the section of Highway 120 than takes one from the eastern side of the Sierra Nevadas on Highway 395 up and over to Yosemite on the western side of the mountain range. Tioga Pass is only open from late May through October, weather permitting. Tioga Pass is one of three roads that crosses the Sierra Nevadas, allowing access from eastern and western sides of the mountain range. From Tioga Pass all the way to the south of Mt. Whitney, no other roads cross the High Sierra.
Tom and I drove up as far as the Yosemite Park entrance which was closed at the time. Later we met up with a fellow Nikonnian and went as far as Olmsted Point but did not photograph Toloume Meadows. We later returned with Diane and captured even more of the magic of this Pass.. This is a collection of photographs from all three trips.
