Cathedral Peak

Postby Hikin Mike » Fri Jun 24, 2011 12:44 pm

I set up my stuff in Tuolumne Meadows for Monday evening. I was planning on shooting Lembert Dome, but saw clouds forming above Cathedral Peak, so I focused on that. The first one is trying to avoid the two trees to the left and right. Not sure if it works, but here it is regardless.

Went wider for this, 6 minutes later...

Surprisingly there isn't much in Tuolumne Meadows, but places like Mt Dana/Mt Gibbs View, it's still under snow....too much snow for me to try and walk on safely.

Did it look like there would be serious barriers to opening the Tuolumne campground within a week or two?

Don't laugh:

Wednesday: Snow showers before 11am, then a chance of rain and snow showers. Some thunder is also possible. High near 48. South southwest wind between 10 and 18 mph, with gusts as high as 23 mph. Chance of precipitation is 80%. New snow accumulation of 1 to 2 inches possible.


Well, OK, that's for the Vogelsang area (around 9600 ft.), but it could snow! :p

I saw the forecast earlier, that's why I mentioned snow!
