2017—Lone Pine

Sunday afternoon, we drove home from Mammoth Lakes through Yosemite National Park and stopped at Olmsted Point on Tioga Road, elevation 8300 feet.  We followed the short trail over glacier creased granite to view the north side of Half Dome and Tenaya Canyon.  Sadly, smoke from a fire in Yosemite Valley made the view  hazy but I found this stunted lone pine struggling through a crack in the granite to be quite photogenic.
