All the majesty in one inspirational view. Yosemite falls, sugar pine carpet, El Capitan, Halfdome, bridal veil falls and to cap it all a friendly squirrel to pose as a foreground to your pictures.

Each pre-pull off stop is worth your time and view. I never felt rushed. Thinking of the history is just one of the many rewards you take away as-well-as memories and pictures.

Even though most people are very anxious to get to Yosemite Valley, it is worth the time to stop at the Tunnel View, especially if the weather is good or at sunset. It is a beautiful vantage point and nice place to rest from the winding roads. Parking was painless as well!

Driving out of the tunnel and getting a glimpse of the view the first time is simply awe inspiring! It frankly, literally, took my breath away the first time I saw it. The view was simply too pretty, too beautiful to be real, yet I knew it was! There are "stations" around the park and Tunnel View is the best... More

A short trip from park lodgings, get there early to get a good spot amongst the photographers. Wait until just after sunset before leaving. Great spot with an iconic view.

This is probably the #1 spot to take a photo of Yosemite Valley and Half Dome with El Capitan in the foreground. It's sort of congested, but stop anyway. You will awe your friends when they see your pics.

Tunnel view is a small vista point pullout before the valley floor. Perfect shot to view Half dome and El Captain together. Coming from the south entrance, (which is the best entrance, we feel. All others have difficult roads preceding the park entrance. 10 mile an hr switchbacks on 120 make it a challenging road. And I cant say from... More

Amazing! You think that you know what you are about to see based on what others have written but no words can prepare you.
