Day 171: Yosemite

For many a day I'd anticipated that this would be a day of unbounded joy, and it did not disappoint.

We started the day with breakfast burritos in the company of Mark and Dawn who kindly offered to cook breakfast for 6.30am when we met them the previous evening during tent pitching. Thanks, it was a pleasure meeting you both.

First we climbed 3,100ft in 12 miles up to Tioga Pass. Then, with the exception of a few lesser climbs, it was 60 odd miles of descending into Yosemite Village with magnificant views all the way. Here are a few:
