Tuolumne Meadows – Yosemite

Camping and trail running or hiking in Tuolumne Meadows is pure magic. Spectacular 360 degree views, the bluest sky I’ve ever seen, granite domes, tall trees, clear air, the ice cold Tuolumne River to cool off in, and sweet trail make for a perfect playground. You can access the John Muir Trail, the Pacific Crest Trail and numerous shorter side trails from the campground. I need to go back and spend a month here exploring all the trails. Here are a few photos from Tuolumne Meadows.

  3. I remember driving through that part of Yosemite, from the west to and over Tioga Pass, and being shocked at just how gorgeous Tuolumne Meadows was. (Also I remember running out for a photo and the surprise at how wet it was, and then at how soaked my feet were…!)

    It’s been too long since I’ve been there. I learned that it’s a very popular area among rock climbers, partly because of the quality granite, and of course because it enjoy some of the best views on earth.
