What a beautiful place, we know that the view is seasonally dressed, and each season has its own ascetics. We now know what the meadows look like in September. The golden grass flows for miles to the mottled gray hills in the distance. Large groves...More

Tuolumne Meadows is a beautiful place two hours drive from the main valley floor. It is unlike the main valley and is at a much higher altitude. The campground at Tuolumne is a large one with 150 plus sites not including the Lodge which is...More

Had to go to Yosemite despite the heavy fires that closed the valley. No smoke at all there (unlike over Lake Tahoe...), just clear blue skies. A much underrated part of the park definitely worth a detour.

This was only 40 minutes from Mammoth Lakes. There are hikes and walks everywhere. It's difficult to keep your eye on the road with all the fantastic views.

Place seemed to be full activity when we visited. Large open space carpeted in yellow flowers and many walkers and hikers enjoying the area. There is also a campground that was very busy. Restrooms at different points and ample parking. Wish we had more time...More

It is worth coming up here to have a different type of view and walk to those in the valley. For more serious hikers you can use the hiking bus to get up high enough to make the walk to half dome only quite daunting...More

Hi This is the listing for Tuolumne Meadows. Do you mean Tenaya Lake on Tioga Road? Then, yes. You can swim in this chilly alpine lake. There are other lakes where you can swim, but none with such easy access. And there... More
