This is an incredible "big picture" view of the valley as you are headed in or out. Take the 15 minutes to stop the care and take in this spectacular view

Cannot beat this view. One of the most crowded "pull-overs" but don't pass it up --- drive in a wait for someone to leave. The views of Half Dome, El Capitan and the Valley are awesome.

Famous view, especially in the evening with the sun behind you. A bit crowded but you can generally get a good viewpoint. Because of the crowds it would not be easy to set up a camera tripod and spend time getting "the" shot. However, I got some satisfactory shots hand-held without difficulty. Not peaceful.

This is one of the most gorgeous views at Yosemite. There is plenty of parking so stop and take pictures you won't regret it. It truly is a postcard photo. This is a must see.

Amazing, breathtaking view, I felt so previlaged to see this with my family. Go see it with your own eyes, it's well worth the drive. No other words to say.

This is the best view I got of all the famous "rocks". There is plenty of room to park and take pictures.

This is the essential not to be missed view of beautiful Yosemite! So glad to share this with one 12 year old granddaughter and see her eyes widened with joy.

THE PLACE for looking out over the Yosemite valley, Half Dome and El Captain. One of the nicest places I've ever seen! However, you will feel kind of small standing there taking photos of this magnificent nature ;).
