Ellery Lake – Tioga Pass

Ellery Lake, Tioga Pass (9/22/18) David Olden

Scattered aspen groves survive at windswept elevations just east of the Yosemite boundary on CA-120E.

David Olden found them backlit by light, most turning yellow with some bright lime green remaining on Saturday. Numerous colorful shrubs and ground covers beside Tioga Pass, provide for a beautiful scene.
“Tioga Pass, itself, has scattered yellow through much of the high country,” Olden reports.
