Jim Butler Motel
Travel Blogs from Tonopah
We were refreshed after a great day in Yosemite and keen to get going at 7:15. We headed out and refuelled. The Tioga Rd was great fun with glimpses of the Yosemite cliff. We stopped at Olmsted Point for a dramatic view of Half dome and tried to spot people climbing it but aging eyes even with telephoto lens did not see them. A short walk from the …
Om teleurstelling te voorkomen, vandaag zijn we afgeweken van de geplande route. Death Valley wordt niet aangedaan en wel om 2 redenen:
