Nice shot up Tenaya Canyon!
It looks like it was shot from Glacier Point or near about from the angle, right?
Great to see all that snow.

Yes, Mav, from Glacier Pt. We did a snowcamping trip with the Bay Area Snowcamping section of the Sierra Club. Quite a dump Sat. night - 4am dig-out. Snowed most of Sunday, too - 2 feet total. What I love about the Sierra is that from season to season she has so many faces.

Tower Peak over the far end of Tilden lake:

The difference in the granite is striking here though the two photos are geographically very close. Dorothy lake Pass was an eye opener for me.. I had no idea the rock could change so completely in such a short distance.

Near March Lake (south of Reds Meadows), as the warming sun made quick work of the moisture from the storm that went through the day before
