While dropping off people to fish at Lake Elery in the Tioga pass, a couple of friends and I ventured into Yosemite National Park. It was a crowded morning when we entered into the Eastern entrance. We headed to the Tuolumne Meadows Visitors Center to check out weather and trails. After spending a couple minutes hovered over a map, we settled for a 5 mile round trip hike to Lake Elizabeth, tucked above the Tuolumne Meadows Campground. Upon arrival, we set up our hammocks, ate our lunches, and enjoyed the serenity and peace of the lake and Cathedral Peak in the background.
