Went to Sunrise Meadows from Tenaya Lake on 6/7.

Got a good view of Tenaya Canyon off trail, on the way up.



Above the middle Sunrise Lake.

Thanks for posting these videos. Can't get enough viewings of Yosemite, especially when I'm not able to be there!

Was that an earthquake you experienced at the end of the first video (the closeup of Half Dome). A little bit of shaking going on at the very end. wink

Looks like an 8.0 on the Richter scale. A lot of zoom + stopping the camera = major earthquake. I trimmed off the shaky ending.

My first thought was that you were going to show the meadowy area
above upper most Sunrise Lake.
I guess it makes sense to call the meadow below Bug Dome and
Sunrise HSC Sunrise Meadow. Not sure where the S is.
So is that meadow widely known as Sunrise? And only the LONG meadow
north Long?
Or are they both Long MeadowS?

Regardless of the name... Tanks for Sharon

All good questions. There is often a lot of confusion on naming meadows and where one begins and ends. There also seem to be a lot of un-named meadows. I had always thought it is called Sunrise Meadows around the HSC. The names tend to get mixed up between Sunrise Lakes, HSC and Meadows. I've also seen it referred to as the meadow near Sunrise HSC. I guess it is technically part of Long Meadows. Never understood why meadows are sometimes a meadow or meadows.

Tanks for Sharon. I wasn't trying to bust ur balls.
I actually like Sunrise Meadow. Was just confused.

I think it should def. be Long Meadow and Sunrise Meadow.
There is a def. separation...

It's very confusing. I'm still not sure what it should be called for sure.
