About this spot
Tenaya Lake is a large, mile long alpine lake nestled right by the side of the Tioga Road. It is the largest easily accessible lake in the park. The lake is magnificently situated between granite domes and peaks on three sides making a very dramatic view. To take advantage of that view you need to photograph from this area on the west side of the lake.
