Near the summit of False White Mountain

On the last of three great days in Yosemite, I set off at daybreak one morning for a quick romp up False White Mountain (12,002 feet) from Tioga Lake. Stumbling cross several beautiful and hidden lakes along the way, the early-morning views as I approached the top were tremendous.
