I took the long way home from a Reno trip recently, heading down US 395 to CA 120, Tioga Pass, through Yosemite. This road is buried under snow most of the year.

1. This guy has a long grueling ride ahead. We are already over 6,700 feet. The Tioga park gate is at 9,945 feet.

7. You can see all the people climbing up the cable to the top of half dome on this one

8. Many people go the Yosemite and never even see this part of the park. They don't know what they are missing!

Nice series! It was closed when we were there in 2006.

Great shots! And I agree with #5 being awesome.
You are right about people missing that part of the park. I am one of those people. I guess I need to go back ;-)a

The area east of where your #8 shot was taken (Ohmstead Point) is my favorite part of Yosemite. There are a lot of day hikes to the lakes in the area, and some beautiful vistas from Tuolumne Meadows if you don't particularly like to walk.
Thanks for posting your shots, it spurs me get back up there in a few weeks.

Out of all the times I've been to Yosemite, I've only been that high up once and it was when I was in my early teens so more than 15 years ago. I'm trying to talk the wife into a Tuolumne/Mono Lake trip in two years....

Great work, I am envious!

Thanks everyone! I'm really happy I decided to take the long way home and go that way. It's the first time in years I had been up there, and the first time ever with good gear, and heck, I didn't even have my "landscape" camera and lens with me (5D2 and 16-35). The wide angles were all with a 7D with a Tamron 10-24, and the long shots were a 1DIV with my 100-400L. I had been at a railroad museum in Portola CA the day prior as well as doing some birding, so had more "action" type stuff with me. I need to try to get back up there on a weekday before the first storm closes the pass for the winter with my entire kit, and see what I can do.

Few experience in life comes close to discovering Yosemite on foot, if you have the luxury to afford the needed time.

Great shots. I have only been to Yosemite once and it was over 15 years ago. I'd love to go back.

Great series - really like #4, and the Half-Dome shot just makes my palms go all sweaty....
