Weekend Reflection: Tenaya Lake, Yosemite

Tenaya Lake, Tioga Road, Yosemite

On October 21, 2009, we drove through Tioga Road from Yosemite National Park to Mono Lake at Eastern Sierra. There are many mountain lakes along the way. After the the Olmested Point, which we have the last view to the Half Dome and Yosemite Valley, we had the first glimpse of the Tenaya Lake, so crystal blue and so calm in the distance.

The road took us directly along the lake shore. On the left side, it is the Polly Dome, on the right, it is the Tenaya Peak. The lake has an elevation of 8,150 feet.

An abundance of reflections, not to mention those very interesting striped mountains. A place I would dearly have loved to visit.

A beautiful part of the world - this brought back some happy memories for me from a trip in 2008.
