Bright Shining Mountains

Afternoon At Tenaya Lake, Yosemite National Park

The glaciers did us a favor when they created Tenaya Lake. The bright granite of the surroundings create beautiful reflections here. The Ahwahnechee people, the area's original inhabitants, had a perfect name for this alpine lake: “Lake Of Shining Rock.” This photo was taken from the western end of the lake.
