Year of Yosemite (YOY) – Day 112 (Tenaya Lake)

Tenaya LakeTenaya Lake looking north on our way to Lembert Dome

Tioga Road is one of the major thoroughfares of Yosemite and it leads to some of the major sights in the Tuolumne Meadow area. Interestingly enough, on the way into the park from the NE, there was quite a bit of ice in the lakes along Tioga Road. By the time we returned a couple of days later, the ice was gone, but patches of snow on the land remained.

Tenaya Lake proved to be a very popular stopping point for hikers, photographers and other nature lovers. On this day, the water was very still and reflections were rather crisp. I had hoped for a dramatic cloud or two, but really…who can complain with a scene like this?
