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.
Some rocks to mark the start of the trial...
The clouds helped keep the heat down.
Looking back where we came from.

Heh, I was just up there last weekend too! We drove up to Glacier Point and saw the dome from there. really incredible views!
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)...
I love that picture of Dog Lake. It is amazing in the mornings. Yosimte is one of my favorite places!
Incredible pictures reminds me of when I was younger living in Banff National Park in Canada.
