Day 2: After
spending one night in Yosemite we hit the road in order to escape those
zillions of German/French/Italian and even US tourists. We passed Tioga Pass, payed a short visist to Mono Lake and shortly before dawn we reached
Devils Postpile N.M. (see also ). About 100 000
years ago those regular tiles in the basalth came into existence similar to
the hexagons in a drying mud.
About 10 000 years ago the glaciers from the ice age eventuelly polished the piles the way we can see them today.
