Year of Yosemite (YOY) – Day 172 (Lembert Dome (6/8) – The End In Sight)

Near the top of Lembert Dome

After much hiking, we see the trail’s terminus

It was quite a hike and as we climbed higher and higher we began to become invigorated. Nothing helps to generate more energy after a substantial hike than seeing what is potentially the end of the trail; reaching your goal.

We have had experiences when, from a distance, what looks like the end turns out to be a saddle and just a stop along the way. This time, however, we were very near the end. There was a saddle of sorts near the very top of the dome and those less inclined waited there.

It was only a short distance from the saddle to the very tip of Lembert Dome. This picture was taken just before the final ascent to the top. There were bands of snow on the sides of the dome.
