The views just keep on coming on the Tioga pass. Allow plenty of time for plenty of stops. There are great places for picnics. Tuolumne meadows is a great stop but there are many others too.

This is the road we took when leaving Yosemite and it was breathtaking and beautiful. If you get a chance then don't miss it, we were headed towards Lake Tahoe and we enjoyed the Journey tremendously.

It was quite a drive but the scenery and serenity is well worth it. Check the weather before going there. It can be a bit chilly.

The Tioga Pass road goes from near the western border of the park through the north/midsection to the eastern border. It offers a good sampling of Yosemite scenery and great opportunities for picture taking.

Less crowded than the valley and just as awe inspiring once you get east of White Wolf. At Olmsted point, across the road from the parking lot is a gradual sloped rock hill. Easy walk all the way to the top (aside from the altitude) and look over the opposite side, you will get a great aerial view of Lake... More

This is a 2 lane road from the east side of Yosemite to the west side and valley. Very congested in summer months with a low speed limit. This road closes in winter months
