Exploring Yosemite's Upper Tenaya Canyon Cascade

In June 2016 I followed Tenaya Creek as it left Tenaya Lake and flows toward Yosemite Valley. My goal was to find the Upper Tenaya Canyon Cascade at full flow and to locate one of John Muir's journal sketch sites (which I found). Pywiack Cascade, below the cascade I was seeking, is too dangerous to approach. But the first cascade is not if approached via the saddle to the east of the creek. I followed Jeffrey Schaffer's advice in his "Yosemite National Park Hikers' Guide."

The three-hour round-trip hike was well worth the effort. Enjoy the photographs!
