|Grass, Elizabeth Lake - Yosemite 2012|
Based on a description in one of his trail guides, Mike thought that Elizabeth Lake would provide some nice photos of the lake and Unicorn Peak. So he left early in the day for the trailhead in the Tuolumne Meadows Campground and headed on up, the trail much steeper than the previous day's hike.
Alas: the rising sun was hitting the mountains straight on so that all details were lost in the glare. Ha! Anyway, Elizabeth Lake is certainly nice enough. Mike did a little loop around part of the lake, noticing these grass fronds emerging from its surface.
