Tenaya Lake and the Clouds Rest ridge, Yosemite Park

Facing East Along the Ridge of Clouds Rest

That's Tenaya Lake, where you started the hike, in the background, with Polly Dome (9,806 feet/2,989 meters) watching its back and preventing rogue glaciers from sneaking up unawares - though it does still let one through at the odd 100,000-year interval.
