Tenaya Lake 01

Tenaya Lake; by Tom Hilton, on Flickr

Came on about 26 miles to Lake Tenaya. Up the long hill the grand views from near Yosemite Creek. [Stephen] Cunningham knows all the localities. He is guide and help, but plates, pepper and frying pans were forgotten. The latter brought down by [Olmsted’s cook] early in the morning. Two Indians have been with us but left. Cunningham can talk their language fluently. Camped at pretty Lake Tenaya with the grand scenery all around. Night decidedly cold.
