Dana Plateau Professional Review and Guide

"The enormous diversity of flowers has long made the unglaciated Dana Plateau a favorite location for Yosemite’s natural history buffs, but its charm is more wide-ranging. A spring-fed trickle flows through the lower end of the slanting plateau, while its northern and eastern escarpments offer striking views of Mono Lake and Tioga Road. Giant granitic boulders dot the landscape, perfect for an afternoon nap—or marmot spotting. The generally quite good use trail becomes less distinct in a few key locations, so only choose this destination if you are comfortable with your navigation skills."
