Stopping at this crystal glacial lake with fine mineral sand was the highlight of our Yosemite visit. A short quarter mile stroll from the parking area led to a beautiful beach surrounded by mountains and evergreens. What was supposed to be a quick stop for lunch became a full day putting, swimming in the crisp water, hanging our hammock for an afternoon nap in the sun. For it being a beautiful summer day, the lake was not even very crowded. I hope to go back soon, even if only in my dreams!
