Serene Alpine Lake

in #adventure4 years ago (edited)

One of the best things about backcountry backpacking is coming across a cool alpine lake. When you're hot and sweaty from the hike, there's nothing more refreshing than jumping unto a natural like like this.

Upper Cathedral Lake, Yosemite National Park


You can reach this lake via the Cathedral Peak trail in Tuolumne Meadows in Yosemite National Park. It's a day hike if you start early but it's better if you overnight it and camp near this lake.

It's a busy trail so there's a daily quota. You will need a backcountry permit if you want to spend more than a day here.

Wow beautiful lake

Excellent one, I can almost feel calmness of this place :)

Jumping in?! I put my toe in the water and that was enough to cool me off! lol! Awesome shot btw

What a beautiful place :)

Looks beautiful!

In my opinion, The real beauty of the lake is in its hiking. The farther you go hiking to reach there, the more beautiful it will look. "Path is the beauty of its destination".

Well I just enjoy mountains :)

Exactly my point ;)
and narrow edges too <3

wow..very nice shot
