Tuolumne Meadows and Soda Springs Professional Review and Guide

"Tuolumne Meadows, 2.5 miles long, is the largest subalpine meadow in the Sierra Nevada. The meadow was formed by a glacier more than 2,000 feet thick. The Tuolumne River winds through the meadow surrounded by peaks and domes. Soda Springs, located on the north side of the meadow, is a naturally carbonated mineral spring. Pools of mineral water bubble up from beneath the ground. Northwest of Soda Springs is the historic Parsons Memorial Lodge, built entirely of native rock and log in 1915 by the Sierra Club. This hike visits all of there areas, plus crossing a bridge over the Tuolumne River. This lush meadow is a popular area for swimming and picnicking. You can easily spend the whole day exploring and daydreaming in the meadow."
