Along Highway 120 / Tioga Pass Road, you will drive through Tuolumne Meadows. This location is one of the reasons you should take your time along Highway 120 / Tioga Pass Road. There are so many things to see here. Don't go around racing from point to point. Stop and spend the time to actually see the park. While this may not be a "destination" location, it's a series of points and stops along 120 that make this drive so incredible. Make sure to get photos and remember that services are limited. Gas up your car before leaving and bring snacks and drinks.

We tried coming here to avoid the smoke from the Creek Fire, but unfortunately it found us here anyway. We tried making the best of it, and the kids enjoyed getting to skip stones and play in the river just off the road. There are lots of hiking trails and opportunities to see wildlife in this area, and with the high elevation off of Tioga Rd, it's generally cooler in the area as well.

It's a bit of flatness in the vertical beauty that is Yosemite. Other than providing nice perspective from which to see the peaks, there isn't too much to say about this meadow. Do walk it and enjoy its beauty, if only as a chance to walk on a bit of flatness in the park outside the valley floor.

It's located on the Tioga road, you may see some snowy mountains there, you may want to stop by and take a look there if you are allowed to do so. For us, we just took some pictures from the car when we drove thru' the Tioga road.
