Dog Lake – Yosemite

Dog Lake (9,240 ft. elevation)  is the reward at the top of a beautiful climb from the campground at Tuolumne Meadows. Clear, sparkling, cold water, millions of dragonflies, magnificent views…wow.

Tuolumne Meadows – Yosemite

Camping and trail running or hiking in Tuolumne Meadows is pure magic. Spectacular 360 degree views, the bluest sky I’ve ever seen, granite domes, tall trees, clear air, the ice cold Tuolumne River to cool off in, and sweet trail make for a perfect playground. You can access the John Muir Trail, the Pacific Crest Trail and numerous shorter side trails from the campground. I need to go back and spend a month here exploring all the trails. Here are a few photos from Tuolumne Meadows.
