Ascent Trip Report

Hiked with my ranger friends/coworkers to the summit of Clouds Rest on a fine June day. We started from the Sunrise trailhead by Tenaya Lake.

Working in Yosemite, people often asked me "what hike has the best views?" Clouds Rest! Even better than standing atop Half Dome, simply because Half Dome is a part of the view! You have a clear perspective of Yosemite's highest peaks, and can see all the way to Mount Dana.
