Two locations are best for photographing Lembert Dome: Tuolumne Meadows and the south side of the Tioga Pass Road (see A and B on the map).
At many locations throughout Tuolumne Meadows, you can capture nice views of Lembert Dome. As you walk along the Tuolumne River in Tuolumne Meadows, you are rewarded with many picturesque views of Lembert Dome (see figure 12.1). I find that the north bank of the river provides the best views. If you head to the footbridge near Soda Springs and walk either east or west from there, you can find many good bends in the river to use as foregrounds for your photographs. Some of these bends are large, slow areas in the river where you can get good reflections; others have rocks and mini rapids where you can use flowing water as your foreground.
