On the Road Again 2019, Part Six

August 24 – September 6 As planned, we left late in the morning for the drive up to Tioga Pass and Tuolumne Meadows.  The road is only open for a limited time each year due to heavy snow and is generally not accessible until late June or early July.  We’ve driven this way a few […]
