Although we have our campsite until Thursday, we decided to leave a day early. The smoke from the Rim Fire is pretty oppressive.
We drove up to Olmstead Point:
The kids got their junior ranger badges, and we hitched up the RV, dumped tanks, filled water, got some gas at hit the road. We were sad to go! Descending Tioga road was a bit scary but doable, coasting down in 1st gear. We drove through the smoke for over 110 miles and stayed at the Walmart of Gardnerville, NV. See the trip map for today’s drive and our current location.
