Tuolomne Meadows is another gem. Beautiful in and of itself, it is surrounded on all sides by sublime scenery. The Tuolomne River passes through the Meadows, coming from the crest of the Sierras and descending into a remote gorge, the Grand Canyon of the Tuolomne. The Meadows and trails that originate there are, nowadays, very crowded – but I had the pleasure of having the place to myself in the “good old days”.

The Cathedral Range
The Cathedral Range borders Tuolomne Meadows to the south, with a number of great looking granite peaks and spires. In 1987, myself and son Ethan hiked into some of the spectacular scenery of the Cathedral Range.
