I call Tioga Pass the "back door" to Yosemite. It is the only entrance from the east. Since it is only about 30 miles from our cabin, we thought we would pack a picnic and go looking for some scenic images.
Three quarters of a mile from the entrance, this is what we found. While most of California's population lies to the west, most of the country is east of the park and many coming from other parts of the country choose this entrance. We've seen lines before, 10 or 12 cars, but never anything like this!
All was not lost, though. The traffic was stopped at Tioga Lake, a fine place for a picnic and a few photos.
