Day hike to clouds rest

Postby MountainMinstrel » Wed Sep 27, 2006 6:09 pm

I just discovered that I have absolutely nothing to do this Saturday so a day hike it is. I have been toying with the idea of doing Clouds Rest for a while and it looks like this could be my last opportunity this year. I have just one question. How long will it take me to get (drive) to Tenya Lake from Fresno?

Just an old musician who loves the Mountains.

Just rough guessing here from countless past trips...
Figure 2 1/2 - 3 hours to the Yosemite gate, and another 45 minutes to an hour or so, up to Tenaya. Thus 4 hours total , maybe a tad less...depending on traffc - winding road and a speed limit of 45 mph in the park.
