Yesterday Kathleen and I visited Tenaya Lake in the Tioga Pass area of Yosemite National Park. The weather has been odd this season. While it’s been quite cold at the higher elevations, there’s been virtually no precipitation yet, so the lake has frozen over but it is still easily accessible.
I had a blast sliding around on the lake! At times like this it really pays to live nearby.
Given the rarity of these conditions, we may not be able to do this again for another 10 years or more. And it’s good that we went when we did. The weather is starting to change–headed for a more seasonal mix of cold and rain/snow.
Lots of pictures, including some really cool ice shots she took, are in my Tenaya Lake album on Picasa.
