An incredible drive, the best we have ever done so far in the US. Every corner you turned the views just got better and better. Tenaya lake was a lovely spot to stop at and have a paddle.

If you go to Yosemite and don't go to the north end of the park and experience Tioga pass and the scenery that comes from this view of the park you are missing out. Great sunrise locations abound here.
