Fall Break

October 26th, 2006

With a week off from school for “Fall Break” we drove to Yosemite intent on passing through Tioga Pass to reach the one California national park and/or monument we had not reached: Devil’s Postpile. The plan hinged greatly on the Tioga Pass being open as it does sometimes snow and closedown in late October. A few days before our trip the road did close for a day, but reopened. It turned out that we had absolutely gorgeous weather the entire trip!


The roads were still open and we witnessed some beautiful fall vistas of the high country of Yosemite. We stretched our legs at Tuolumne Meadows, taking the 1.5 mile roundtrip hike to Soda Springs.


Then we continued on to Mammoth Lakes, our outpost for the next day’s events at Devil’s Postpile.
