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.

How is it that Half Dome has been photographed so often from Cooks Meadow, yet it can still show itself off in unique ways? I always get myself out before sunrise when staying here. You never know what new scenes you will find.
Steadman Meadow, Yosemite Valley
On a day of somewhat boring weather, the meadow grasses were just waiting for someone to come along and pay attention. The heavy dew brought out the colors.
