Amazing storm clouds at Tioga Pass. This is looking west up into Lee Vining Canyon where the Tioga Pass Road comes over from Yosemite. This is the crest of the Sierra and the peaks rise up to 12,000'

The little white spots are rain drops

The Foresta area after the El Portal Fire, 8/9/14

This view is looking east into Yosemite Valley and you can barely make out El Capitan and Half Dome. It is unbelievable how hot the El Portal Fire was when it came racing up Crane Creek from El Portal and almost burned down the home you see.

#yosemite, Tioga Road Rehabilitation Project Update 8/8/14

There are 3 sections the contractors are working on between Crane Flat and White Wolf and you will be delayed at each one.

It looks NPS is ramping up to fix a problem spot in the roadway, 2 miles west of Tuolumne Meadows. Not sure when it will start but maybe Monday, 8/12? So expect more delays there.

Then when you get to Tioga Pass they are is still work going on at the Entrance Station with 20 min delays. 7am to 7pm

So if you plan to travel the Tioga Road plan ahead for lots of extra time as you will be in long lines of cars going well  below the speed limit.

 Old sawmill in Foresta after the El Portal Fire, 8/3/14

This is a old sawmill in Foresta that we used to ride our bikes into when it still stood in the 80's. The 90 fire burned it down and now the El Portal Fire has once again chared it and the land scape.
