Summer in the American Southwest • Part 9
On our way to the Pacific Coast and after passing through Death Valley, we could not miss to cross Yosemite National Park from East to West.
Only one day was planned to do so, we will discover it was far way not sufficient for this treasure of California.
Anyway, after a night at Mammoth Lake, we headed north to reach the eastern entrance of Yosemite riding the stunning Tioga Road that took us up to the Tioga Pass, the only eastern entrance of the Park located at 3,030 meters of altitude. Yes you read right ! You ‘d better not suffer from altitude sickness !
We made a first stop at Tuolumne Meadows. We wanted to do a small hike before getting into the heart of Yosemite.
