316 Tarns & kettles
Come spend the morning at the crest of the Sierra. At nearly 10,000 feet above sea level, we will find ourselves immersed in the beauty of the alpine edge and the edge of Yosemite National Park. Among glacial tarns and kettles, lodgepole and whitebark pines, peaks and meadows we will meander in search of nesting Mountain Bluebird, Spotted Sandpiper, Cassin’s Finch, and maybe some unexpected species. Every season here is unique. Tioga Pass is a thoroughfare for birds and we could easily be surprised by a rare sighting as we explore and seek birds and other wildlife in this rich variety of habitats. Bring a hat, sunscreen, warm layers, water, and snacks.
