Day 3 - Donahue Pass: Tuolumne Meadows to Marie Lakes Trail junction (16 mi, 2470 ft relief). The trail from Tuolumne Meadows follows Lyell Canyon, named after the eminent English geologist Charles Lyell, a wide u-shaped glacial valley. The trail in the lower valley is gentle, and I was able to make good time.
