Lake of Shining Rock

Tenaya Lake, Yosemite National Park

This is my favorite spot at one of my favorite alpine lakes. The name in the title of this photo is the original Indian name for this lake; an evocative name for this special place. I love the story about the naming of the lake. Chief Tenaya protested when army officers suggested naming the lake after him.
