Starting Up Lembert DomeJuly 18, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 66 °F
Having seen the valley twice, we decided to head East towards Tioga Pass. Before we left camp there was a bit of a mix up about who was taking our site. The pressure to get a campsite was intense because all of the campgrounds East of us were closed - including Tuolumne Meadows! I realized how lucky we were to get the spot we did!
The drive out was gorgeous - and I could enjoy it more because we weren't rushing to find a place to camp. Just past Tuolumne Meadows is Lemberg Dome. We decided to do the 4 mile loop around the back of the dome with a scramble to the top.
