    Just got some reservations at Tuolumne Meadows campground for 10 days from now! We'll try that one with The Big Avacoado camper.

    I have a friend who owns an old VW van that's about the same color as your Big Avacado. He calls it the Flying Pickle. Great names for both!

    You were real lucky to find a site up there this time of the season. Have a good time!

    I've got to get up there. Soon.
    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.

    I got snowed out from the Eastern side on May 20th, fortunately, that was the side to get stuck on due to amazing atmospherics for a few days at Mono and everywhere else. I got to the closure gate about 10 minutes after they opened it and had a good time shooting the spring snow scene at Ellery Lake.

    Here is a shot that I had to kind of wait for, the spotlighting on the ice bank...

    We are going to be in the Valley on the end of Sept. Hope 120 still open then, at least to Olmstead and Tenaya.

    It all depends. The normal tradition is to close Tioga Pass and the road leading up to it pending the first major snowstorm in November. But for all practical purposes,
    unless its a dry winter like the last one, this means the road tends to get shut down at the end of October. Temporary closures can occur any time of year for
    brief snow flurries.
