If you plan to visit Yosemite National Park in the summer, the Tioga Road drive is a great way to escape the crowds.

Gorgeous natural landmarks, great views, and secluded hiking trails await you along the 72 miles between the  Big Oak Flat Entrance to Yosemite and Lee Vining.

Olmsted Point  offers panoramic views of two of Yosemite's spectacular granite cliffs: Clouds Rest and Half Dome.

Tenaya Lake is a beautiful alpine lake nestled at the foot of tall mountains.

Tioga Lake and Ellery Lake  are other serene  alpine lakes between  the pass and Lee Vining.

Tuolumne Meadows  are especially beautiful  in the spring...

... and you may see wildlife!

You can climb  Lembert Dome or view it from below.

Tioga Pass is the highest mountain pass in California.

But it's only open  in the summer and fall!
