We got up early in the morning from LeeVining to start the drive over Tioga Pass. The drive was beautiful - we got out several times and the kids (10& 12) climbed on all the rock formations. This road was not scary at all (we traveled some scary windy sloping roads on our vacation but Tioga was not one of them). The thing that we did not enjoy was Yosemite Valley - our family is a huge fan of National Parks but this one was so crowded (we were there on a Monday) that it took away from the natural beauty of the area. I would suggest Tioga Pass and getting out of your car and exploring along the way and avoid Yosemite Valley (the waterfalls in Columbia Gorge are breathtaking and you are not standing next to hundreds of people)
