This is a Geosurvey map of the Tioga region of East Yosemite National
Park. The Tioga Pass gate is 9945 feet altitude. Gaylor Peak (11,004 feet)
is at the point under the capital G in it's name. I hiked to this summit
and took the following 2 pictures. The first image is taken in the direction
southeast. The mountains in the distance are, on the left, Mount Dana 13,053
feet and, to the right, Mount Gibbs 12,764 feet. In the next image, is seen
the ancient galicial formation known as Granite Lakes.
Here I am standing on Gaylor Peak with Mount Dana 13,053 feet and Mount
Gibbs12,764 feet in the distance toward the southwest.
From the top of Gaylor Peak, toward the Northwest, this is the ridge
above Granite Lakes. The Mountain over my right shoulder is 12,002 feet,
another thousand feet higher than where I am standing. The 'Great Sierra
Mine' is directly behind me. Obviously a glacier carved this formation.
While standing here one's right foot is in Yosemite National Park and Tuolumne
County (pronounced two olomy) with one's left foot in the Inyo National
Forest and Mono County. Observe the small avalanch behind me.
The map below shows the region of the park east of Yosemite Valley.
The image below the map is taken just south the Hidden Lake at the top of
the Tenaya Cayon. You can see Half Dome in the distance.
