Today was the day. The Ranger told us it was good we didn’t come yesterday because there were 100 folks lined up and not that many permits. We arrived before 7 am and promptly dropped Jess’s pack at the sign which said LINE up here for 11:00 am permits. We were first in line.
Thankfully the Tuolumne ranger station opened at 8 pm and Fred was given the last 2 permits to head out towards Donahue pass. Woohoo! On their way.
