With the lack of snow in the Sierras, Tioga Pass into Yosemite National Park has been open. I took advantage of the nice weather and decided a short backpack in the park would be a great way to start off the New Year. And a good way to cure my hangover from NYE. I was blown away by the views from up there and could not have found a better place to set up camp. With Half Dome in my face right on the other side of the valley, I got many many shots of it. You could also see pretty far into Yosemite Valley.
