I was hoping it wouldn't be snowing on the pass. Then when I was east of the Sierra I was hoping tioga pass wouldn't have snow for the return trip. I had left my camping stuff in yosemite valley, since my bivy sack was damp when I left that morning. There were snow plows ascending both passes, but no snow falling.

The pass on 108 looked like this:


And the return trip on 120 like that:


Raining continuously in the mtns, but no snow or ice.

And if you looked at a compass you'd probably find you were heading either East or West.

I had the white duct tape on me, and it just had to happen.

Indeed. We have similar here, but it's freeway, and awkward to photograph. On 580 you're going west, on 80 you're going east, and on the compass you're going north.
