Day 2 we wanted to do a hike down in the town of Mammoth, chose the Duck Pass, elevation 9000 feet. I had read about the ridiculous wind storm that roared through here in November that had left thousands of downed trees, it was still a mess. I heard from someone that in certain spots there were average winds of 100 mph.. FOR 15 HOURS IN A ROW… Crazy… Well there were plenty of trees torn right out of the ground.. but not a ton of wildflowers.
Day 3 we headed towards Tioga Pass near Yosemite, had never been that far north. The air was thin and the wind was whipping up Glacier Canyon. At this elevation we were a little early for most wildflowers, but the scenery was stunning.
Still got some nice pics, enjoy
