Ellery Lake, May 27, 2002

After we left the Mono Lake area, we decided to go to Saddlebag Lake, just East of Yosemite. Unfortunately, the road was snowed in a mile or so before the lake. We turned around and decided to go to Ellery Lake instead. Ellery Lake is just East of Tioga Pass at an elevation of about 9500 ft.
