Cathedral Peak – Year of Yosemite (YOY) – Day 199

Cathedral Peak and Tuolumne Meadows from Sentinel Dome

Cathedral Peak and Tuolumne Meadows from Sentinel Dome

Among the numerous and varied mountains in Yosemite National Park, a few have gained prominence because of their special location, shape or challenge to conquerors. Cathedral Peak is one such recognizable pinnacle.

The picture above was taken from the top of Sentinel Dome and shows the stretch across Tuolumne Meadows including the river. Cathedral Peak, like Sentinel Dome, stands as figurative sentries keeping watch over the expanse.

Cathedral Peak is open to mountain climbers and it stands as a challenge to those who enjoy that sport. An interesting picture of one such adventurer can be seen HERE.
