Gaylor Peak, Pass, Lakes / Dana City / Granite Lakes

Postby Ranboze » Wed Sep 13, 2006 7:26 pm

The eastern cusp of Yosemite is one of my most favorite places. I took a leisure stroll up Gaylor Pass on Labor Day and onto the Peak, then down to the lakes. Dana City, aka, The Great Sierra Mine is an old mining area at the north end of the upper Gaylor Pass. An EZ cross country led to the Granite Lakes. Wide open spaces, alpine meadows... wow. This would be a great place to visit earlier in the season when the wildflowers are more plentiful.

Walking outside is where I find what's inside.

I love the cabins and views from Dana City! Your album popped up late last night, or maybe it was early this morning :retard: on my screen, so I got to look at them early. Cool area!

Ranboze, Beautiful pictures! I love that whole area around Tiogo Pass & Saddlebag Lake.

We were day hiking just a bit north of you that same day...the lakes south of Conness, Green Treble & by the Carnegie station.
Thank you for sharing :)
