August 31, 2017: Tioga Pass, Yosemite National Park, California

After leaving Lone Pine, I drove into Yosemite National Park from the east. I hiked from Tioga Pass to the top of Gaylor Peak and the Gaylor Lakes Basin. Then I drove west through the park, stopping briefly at Tuolumne Meadows and Tenaya Lake, and finally Olmsted Point for a smoky Half Dome view.
