Year of Yosemite (YOY) – Day 171 (Lembert Dome (5/8) Looking Northwest)

The Tuolumne river in the distance

From Lembert Dome, the Tuolumne river can be seen in the distance

After ascending to the top of the Lembert Dome and walking around to take in all of the views and perhaps doing a bit of whirling, I focused on the mountains to the west. In the picture above, you can see how far they stretched. Also in view is the Tuolumne river meandering gracefully at the base of the mountains.

Based on my previous experiences, I am certain there are prominent features and points of interest captured in the above view of which I am not even aware, but what I did realize is that this was a beautiful scene!
