Looking back East into Tioga Pass from the far west end of the Tenaya Valley. The body of water in the center of the picture is Tenaya Lake with its crystal clear alpine waters.

This area is accessible by car in the late spring and into the fall via California Highway 120 which traverses the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range in the area of Yosemite National Park. The Highway crosses the beautiful alpine Tioga Pass at 10,000 foot elevation.

If you have not driven it, by all means it is a "don't miss" destination...
