Yesterday, I took advantage of some free time to do a little exploring along Tioga Road in Yosemite National Park. I found a nice view on the shore of Tenaya Lake. and returned about 90 minutes before sunset to see what would happen. It didn’t look promising with a relatively heavy cloud cover blocking the sun but it was a beautiful setting and there was a nice flat boulder to sit on while I waited. Sure enough, the sun started breaking through about 25 minutes before the sun dropped below the ridgeline. The image below shows the result.

I should add my thanks to LAtteDa Coffee in Lee Vining for their wi-fi service. And a good cup of coffee as well.
