Tenaya Lake on the Tioga Road
August 8, 2004
This view of Tenaya Lake is from an overlook just below the Halfdome viewpoint. It gives a different perspective than that we got from the granite dome. We are headed toward the lake.
Soon we were on the shore of Tenaya Lake and preparing for Jeff and the girls to take a swim.
Immediately across the highway from the overlook was this symmetric rock dome, like a miniature Stone Mountain. After riding for a while, Ashleigh and Jordan were anxious to climb on the rock, so we all headed for the top. That was where we got the nice viewpoint of Tenaya Lake above.
On the side of the dome were some magnificent old juniper trees. Ashleigh and Jordon climbed up on this rock at the base of one of them.
After an interesting climb to the top, Jeff, Ashleigh and Jordan start back along the top ridge in view of Halfdome at Yosemite Valley, some 55 miles away by road.
When we returned to the overlook, Jeff set up the camera for a remote picture and got us all in with Halfdome in the background. Brenda and Rod holding Jordan, Darla, Jeff holding Ashleigh.
