Tioga Lake is one of my favorite places to photograph and with this stunning photo from Beau Rogers it’s easy to see why. Here’s what Beau said about his photo:
“Of all the places that can currently be driven to at Yosemite, I think Tioga Lake is the most scenic. There’s still a little bit of ice floating around, and it’s a nice contrast to the super crowded and kind of warm valley floor.”
I couldn’t agree more. If you’ve never been to Tioga Lake it’s at the eastern end of the Tioga Road before it starts down to Lee Vining. If you decide to continue on down the hill don’t let the steep grade fool you, it’s easy going. Definitely not as bad as Priests Grade by Groveland. As an extra reward if you do decide to head down the hill, there are a lot of great places to eat in Lee Vining (especially if you like BBQ).
Great photo, Beau. Thanks for sharing.
