About a year ago I visited Lyell Canyon. I had never been there before so my brother and I were in the mood to check it out. So, we got up early in the morning, and travelled into Yosemite to the parking lot near Tuolumne Meadows. This is where the above coordinates get you.
We then got onto the John Muir Trail and started going south into Lyell Canyon. I didn't take many pictures that early morning, but did more on the way back. So, this next picture really doesn't show what it was like that morning. There weren't any clouds and the grass was light-orange and green looking at the time.
Along the way we finally saw Mt. Lyell through the forest of trees:
It was not too much longer before a big meadow opened up, and I was able to view it. That will be in Part 2.
