Tenaya Lake
Tenaya is not only one of the most beautiful lakes in Yosemite, it’s one of the most accessible when Tioga Road (the only road in the high country) is open, usually May-October. This also makes it one of the most popular, but because it’s at 8,150 feet and well above the busy valley floor, it’s still a lot less crowded. The sandy swimming beach on the east end of the clear alpine lake is a popular sunbathing spot, with granite domes surrounding three sides; there’s also a smaller, usually less busy beach on the west end, but you’ll have to do a little wading to get there. You can also do an easy, 2.5-mile hike around the lake.
