Photographer's Note

Hello TE friends,
this trail follows around Dog Lake for an enjoyable hike high up in the eastern sierras. Dog Lake is in Tuolemne Meadows, the eastern portion of Yosemite Nartional Park. The lake is at an elevation of 9,240 ft. and the hike from Tioga road is 2.8 miles round trip so it is considered an easy hike if you don't mind the altitude. In late August, the wildflowers are gone and the grasses have turned golden and bronze. This is a very popular hike in Tuolemne Meadows and is near Lembert Dome.
The lake is ringed by evergreens and granite mountains with Mt. Dana and Mt. Gibbs behind it. This lake was "named Dog Lake because in 1898, Robert Marshall of the US Geological Survey visited and found an abandoned sheepdog with a litter of puppies" there.(www.nps.gov/yosemite)
