High Sierra Sanctuary
Photo By David Richter

  • Title: High Sierra Sanctuary
  • State/Province/Region: California
  • Country: United States
  • Description: The 10,911 ft (3,326 m) Cathedral Peak towers over Upper Cathedral Lake and much of Yosemite National Park like an ancient sanctuary. During a colorful late August sunset the western slope picks up the last light of the day, as seen from the granite blocks 130 feet above the lake's surface and a deer browsing in the meadow to the left of the lake. While in the distance the peaks of Matterhorn Peak, Twin Peaks, Camiaca Peak (most distant, right behind Fairview Dome) and Sheep Peak (left to right) loom just as majestically over Yosemite National Park and the Sierra Nevada range.

    Thanks for your beautiful photos and the detailed information you provide. I'll have to make the drive up from Madison to check out these wonderful locations.
