Last weekend afforded an opportunity to explore the Lembert Dome Hike in Yosemite National Park.

Lembert Dome is the monolithic dome that dominates the eastern end of Tuolumne Meadows in Yosemite National Park. It's a justifiably popular ascent, particularly among day hikers in the area, with the summit offering magnificent views of Tuolumne Meadows to the west, the Cathedral Range to the south, and the Sierra crest to the east.

The trail starts out a bit steep but the views are definitely worth the trek up, as is a quick side trip to Dog Lake.

Here are a few pictures.

Hello Jeremy... I'm proud of you for hiking. Ashamed of myself, while looking at your pics I kept thinking *Did you re-jet for altitude?" and "What knobbies did you use?" stuff like that. Terrible.

I'll be in Truckee the week of the Air Races (doing both gliders & dirt-bikes)...
