On October 16th Joel and I headed up to Tioga Pass for a morning climb of Mount Dana to be followed by a climb of Vogelsang Peak later in the day (photos from that climb forthcoming). A chilly breeze at Tioga Pass caused us to take the prudent course of action and dress in several layers right from the parking lot. It turns out all the layers were needed as subfreezing temperatures coupled with a stiff wind produced frigid conditions. However, the brisk weather produced magnificent clarity with phenomenal photography of the Cathederal Range in the early morning light. We made the roundtrip trek in a little over 2.5 hours and drove down from Tioga Pass to Toulumne Meadows where we would begin the adventure run to Vogelsang Lake and Peak in the afternoon (to be continued). Here are a few of the photos with a complete album of here.
