High­way 120 is a mag­i­cal mys­tery tour through the heart of Yosemite Na­tional Park’s ex­quis­ite high coun­try. From the hand­some old min­ing town of GROV­E­LAND, fol­low 120 east into the park (HETCH HETCHY, the fra­ter­nal twin of Yosemite Val­ley that was dammed to pro­vide San Fran­cisco’s wa­ter sup­ply, is a short side trip) past the TUOLUMNE GROVE of gi­ant se­quoias and up into the rar­efied alpine world. Pull over at OLM­STED POINT to view HALF DOME from an an­gle you’ve never seen be­fore. You’ll tra­verse TUOLUMNE MEAD­OWS, the jump­ing-off point for some of Yosemite’s finest hik­ing trails, and cross 9,943-foot TIOGA PASS be­fore de­scend­ing three-quar­ters of a ver­ti­cal mile to shim­mer­ing MONO LAKE.
