Yosemite is truly one of the most amazing places you will ever visit and is filled with countless trails, views and photographic opportunities. And Glacier Point provides one of the best places to view the wonder of the Yosemite Valley.

If you have never been to Yosemite, it is hard to image a place this beautiful. Granite valleys cut from glaciers with breathtaking views and formations at every turn. Standing at Glacier Point, you are face to face with Half Dome and able to witness the majesty of the Yosemite in all her glory. From here you can see the Yosemite Village, Vernal & Nevada Falls, Olmsted Point and the granite mountains surrounding the valley.

And at sunset… when the sun paints the mountain tops with an amazing salmon colored glow – the moment is simply unforgettable.
