Sunset Pictures Over Mammoth Peak

Before Sunset

On this trip I wanted to stay in the Tioga Pass area so I could photograph both sunrise and sunset. After I photographed sunrise, I spent the rest of the morning in the Sawmill Campground/Saddlebag area, and I’ll post a few images later. I went back to “my spot” and tried to get some sleep. It really didn’t work, so I occasionally would walk around the area and take pictures….especially because I had a lot of clouds. As usual, by the time sunset came, most of the clouds dispersed. Thankfully I had a few nice clouds at sunset to add some colors and drama.

I just want to say a BIG thank you to Rob and Susie for helping me fix my near-flat tire. They used their small air compressor and re-inflated the tire….and it held. I was able to stay and take pictures of this sunset and drive home without any more problems!
