Well, I was afraid of this...Sonora and Tioga are closed. I'm sure Sonora Pass will open but sometimes the Yosemite Rangers are just looking for a reason to close Tioga for the season. They have done this before and even though the pass was clear for several weeks, they still didn't open it. That year they finally reluctantly opened it in mid November because of the lack of snow.
So I'm not too sure about an East side meet for me. There is a good chance both will open and if the weather doesn't look bad I'll try to make it if that's were everybody is going.
I'm heading up this week
now that I finally got my van back from Freedom Ford
Hopefully Leavitt Lake
will be open sometimes this week and at least I can see it this year.
If weather sours this month I plan the use the weekend as my routine trip to areas above Fresno.
Those planning to go, can we get up a list....times gettin close.
