This year, while on my Nature Trek to find some autumn colors, I decided I would drive Highway 120, east to west. It is one of my favorite roads, taking me over the Tioga Pass and into Yosemite National Park. I was not expecting much color given the elevations, but the views are gorgeous regardless. But some pretty fall foliage did jump out on display.
There is a little service station set up at the juncture of Highway 395 and Highway 120. This area had some pretty trees.
Some side roads before reaching Yosemite National Park entrance also showed some color.
Tioga Lake is always inviting, sitting just east of the entrance to Yosemite.
Tenaya Lake sits right by the road.
Olmsted Point always shows some spectacular views.
But fall colors did start showing themselves, the further west I drove.
It was a beautiful drive! To see the same drive in the summer, visit this post. Highway 120 is impressive in every season.
