Pools in Tuolumne Meadows
Tuolumne Meadows is full of serene little pondlets that reflect the grass and clouds and draw in photographers at sunset like moths to the proverbial blowtorch. And why not? Along with its aesthetic virtues, the pool that reflects the clouds blowing towards you or the bear sneaking up behind you foretells the immediate future with far more clarity than any conventional crystal ball. Never underestimate the power of the puddle.
