Where is Middle Chain Lake?

I found some interesting pictures of "Middle Chain Lake, Yosemite National Park", but I can't find it on the map. Does anyone know? Or maybe the photo was mislabeled.

Middle Chain Lake Location.

I'll have to look when I get home, I'm pretty sure I have a picture.

Yeah. I know someone who "swam" in Lower Ottoway 2 weekends ago.
Somehow the guy got wet... was amazed because it was one of the shortest
swims I have ever seen. (was right up there with the wife deciding to take
a dip in Rodgers a couple years ago)
Me... I sniffy under wings... and say "smells good to me"... if I can make it
9 days on the SHR without a shower... I can make it four days.

In the linked thread I mentioned it was August when I took the trip... (at Steelhead Lake over Columbus Day weekend I saw three guys dare each other into a cannonball into the lake...they didn't last long...I didn't go in, it was a tad warmish by October standards which is by no means warm).

I like to swim. Middle Chain in August was a really nice place to do it. So was this trailside pond between Red Devil Lake and Isberg Pass:



Of course, I've been happy to swim in the ocean near Santa Cruz on July 4 (multiple occasions, no wetsuit), and near Pt. Reyes in October, so scales may be calibrated accordingly.

Got it, thank you, just south of Breeze Lake, southern part of the park.
Thanks
