Olmstead Point in Yosemite National Park, CA
The following tours visit Olmstead Point:
Olmstead Point is a magnificent viewing point off of Tioga Road. Looking Southwest into Tenaya Canyon the view is dominated by the less recognizable North side of the Half Dome, and Cloud's Rest, a prominent granite peak rising 5000 feet above the creek. Tenaya lake near the upper valley is a popular swimming and boating spot, carved by a branch of the Tuolumne glacier, with a backdrop of light granite rocks. The lake is fed by a network of creeks, and its outlet is Tenaya creek which flows down the dramatic and dangerous Tenaya Canyon. The extreme rugged terrain of the canyon has led to its nickname, 'the Bermuda Triangle of Yosemite.'
