Laura, Zephyr and I were curious to see what the record snow pack looked like on Sonora Pass this late into June. We had heard there were still areas directly off the highway with more than five feet of snow and that runoff caused by our recent heatwave was causing evening flooding across HWY 108. The drive did not disappoint! Not only did we see more snow that we’d imagined, we saw more cars! Like 10x’s the normal amount, likely due to the fact that Tioga Pass is still closed.
I'll add some descriptions to this vacation in a day or two, but in the meantime here is the link to the photojournal.
