  Tioga Pass, Landscape
by Myndo
 
 

This is the hinterland of the Yosemite.
Here at the Tioga Pass you cross the granite peaks of the Sierra Nevada on the highest automobile pass in California.
(But be not afraid, we did it easily with a Caravan, no stress).

The area is quite dry around here and due to the bigger height, the plants grow more sparsely and the trees are twisted and turned by the steady wind.

It's a sometimes almost alien view, but I liked it a lot.
Like modern art, you know?

BTW Tioga pass is closed in winter as soon there is snow.

Address: Tioga Pass - between Sequoja and Mono Lake
Directions: California
behind the Yosemite
