Clouds Rest

"Clouds Rest is a mountain in Yosemite National Park east northeast of Yosemite Village, California. Although there are many peaks in the park having far greater elevation, Clouds Rest's proximity to the valley gives it a very high degree of visual prominence. " - Wikipedia

"Northeast Ridge trail - A class 1 hike from the Sunrise Lakes Trailhead (8,160') on CA SR-120, aka Tioga Road, just southwest of Tenaya Lake. This is undoubtedly, the easiest route up Clouds Rest starts from Tenaya Lake, a 7-mile YDS class 1 route along hiking trails usually done as a dayhike. Many people continue on the Clouds Rest trail past (and sometimes up) Half Dome and down into Yosemite Valley. Of course, it is possible to retrace your steps, but much more strenuous." - summitpost.org

The trailhead was very crowded from early in the morning and there was a long line for an outhouse. It was a zoo.

I run into Powen, who came to our Bull Run Peak, Carson Iceberg Wilderness hike last year. He was climbing Sunrise Mountain on the day with his friend.

By looking back, you can see Tenaya Lake from the top.
