Three little hikes to great views around the park

A visitor once asked a park ranger what to do if they had only one day in Yosemite. The park ranger said, "I would sit right down and have myself a good cry".
Yet with a car, some prior recon, and a little scrambling you can view quite a bit of the Yosemite essence in a day and still have time to relax for lunch and maybe do some fishing along the way.

Lembert Dome, Olmstead Point and Illilouette Ridge

Jay and I camped around Mono Lake. We drove up and hiked Lembert Dome in Tuolumne Meadows first. Then we stopped at Tenaya Lake.

I ate lunch and Jay went fishing after pounding down a burrito on the drive. Then we went up the road a bit and scrambled up slabs and benches to the high point behind Olmstead Point. Finally we drove into the Valley and up to the Glacier Point area to hike Illilouette Ridge in late afternoon.

What a fantastic day you had. I went to Yosemite for the first time last year and I loved it.

Thanks Pete. It was one of the most enjoyable days I've had in Yosemite after many visits over a 17 year period.

Any time in Yosemite is a good time! One week before your day, I was in the same places seeing the same spectacular sights. One can park anywhere, away from the regular crowds, and explore the myriad of domes, lakes and trails. Thanks for the memories! CJ

Thanks again CJ. I remember voting for a few of those shots of yours. I plan to get back up to the Sierra for a few days this weekend. See ya!
