Photographer's Note

Yosemite's Nunatak Lake is located east of Tuolumne Meadows, and visible on the north side of Tioga Pass Road (Highway 120). It is more in size to a pond, yet still photogenic and a fine place to relax.

Tioga Pass is the highest point on a California road crossing the Sierra Nevadas, at 9,943 feet (3,031 meters). It is closed in the winter and usually does not open until late May depending upon snow conditions. And it usually closes by November with the first snow fall.

Continuing eastward on Tioga Road ends at the junction with Highway 395 at the small town of Lee Vining. Highway 395 is a fine route running south to north to explore the eastern side of the Sierra Nevada Mountain range and the nearby Mono Lake and Bodie Ghost Town.
