Clouds Rest 2007


Interesting Facts & Highlights


This formation is visible from many angles and is a great example of exfoliation (sheeting), particularly as it follows the surface structures. High on the cliff face the sheets are concave in the bowl shape basins, and convex in raised areas of the ridge. Named by C Company on March 28th, 1851, as clouds gathered for a snowstorm just the second day of the trip. Olmstead point offers closer views and it is visible for a large stretch of the Tioga Pass Road (120).
