Purt near but not plumb
We are 66 miles as the crow flies from our campsite at Yosemite, but we are not crows and the passes across the Sierra Nevada are still closed due to heavy snowfall and late spring. We are going to attempt an alternate route, which may prove very exciting if doable. We are going to ask directions at the gate to the first pass we were scheduled to drive. If not doable, we may have to go further north in order to find an open pass. We may have to drive 200 miles or more to get there.
