Hippy wasn't feeling well, so she stayed back at the trailhead and took a nap while I explored this awesome (nearly) 11,000-foot peak in the geographic center of Yosemite National Park. The weather was great ... mid 60s, cloudy, and an occasional sprinkle. Ideally it would have been clear, but the views were still unbelievably spectacular. I made great time for a first ascent despite lots of stopping to take pictures, 90 minutes. I probably passed 20 people coming down, and saw another handful still going up. But it was a pleasantly unpopulated trail for midsummer in this National Park ... and for the views, this has to be the best short hike Yosemite has to offer.

I took some photos up top, but didn't spend a lot of time exploring. Another trip and I might visit the other two "false peaks" east of the true summit. It would be a great place to spend an entire afternoon (as long as no lightning threatens).

To anybody driving the Tioga Road, I can't recommend this hike enough!
