Ascent Trip ReportI woke up to find the Tioga Road open a day earlier than expected (they blasted some school bus sized fallen rocks). So I knew I had to do Clouds Rest. The problem was that I absolutely destroyed my legs the day before blasting up the 4 mile trail and running down it. I willed my stiff, sore muscles up and down this hike. Not a bad hike but the winner is the view from the top. Can't beat unobstructed 360 views of Yosemite! Truly an epic place. Just a little bit of snow near the top in shady spots. Mostly had to contend with the melt runoff on the trails.
