Quick trip up Pothole Dome. Took the trail farther past it than previously before climbing up. Nice as always. After, we had a little fun out on Olmsted Point on our way to White Wolf.

After a quick trip up Lembert, and a visit to the wilderness office to get our permits for Sunday, we decided to check out the other end of Tuolumne Meadows.

The ecologically sensitive alpine meadow is being "restored" and the trail takes you around the end rather than the much shorter route straight across. From there the hike to the top is a simple one. As always, the scenery in Tuolumne is top notch, with the only scar made by the road and line of cars parked along it.

This is the ultimate in hikes for 4-year-old kids and tourists who usually don't venture more than 20-feet from their vehicle.

Our toughest hike yet...mainly due to 1. Holding our breath as we passed all the idling cars in the parking area 2. The people up the "trail" who probably left their cars idling.

Meh, nice little trot up the hill, I wasn't able to go up this little dome last year and I'm really glad chums and 9L didn't mind the tiny side trip for me :)

I truly enjoy granite domes, you can hike, walk, run, climb up or slide down and in most places thanks to the tough texture of the rock, you're in control...ah let's go back and play on more domes next year! :)

Short hike in Tuolumne Meadows. The views are just awesome! This is well worth the time and effort.
