Mirror Lake

Mirror Lake

This was taken after a short hike up the Tenaya Creek to an elevation 4094ft.  May is the perfect time to visit Yosemite. The Spring runoff produces spectacular waterfalls, very few bugs and just before the start of the tourist season.

Mirror Lake is a small, seasonal lake located on Tenaya Creek in Yosemite National Park. Situated in Tenaya Canyon directly between North Dome and Half Dome, it is the last remnant of a large glacial lake that once filled most of Yosemite Valley at the end of the last Ice Age, and is close to disappearing due to sediment accumulation.
