Tenaya Lake. Yosemite Valley, United States

Located along the Tioga Road in Yosemite National Park, Tenaya Lake is a perfect place to stop and take in the beauty that defines Yosemite. An early morning stop at the lake will offer a peaceful setting compared to the hustle and bustle of the valley. It is also a great place for picnicking between morning and afternoon activities. Visitors can take the flat 2.5-mile loop hike around the lake to take in the stunning views. The Tioga Road is open June through October most years and is inaccessible in the winter months. Weird, but true: in the winter of 2011-2012, weather conditions made it possible for people to ice skate on the lake. The Tioga Road is generally closed due to heavy snow, but lack of snow and low temperatures made for the perfect skating conditions.
