We've visited Yosemite a few times and this view doesn't get old. We park and stop just for a few minutes. Get tone to stretch your legs, calm your nerves from mountain driving, and snap a few pictures.

Best place in the park to view the valley. Vista point right at the parking lot. During holidays and summer time parking can be a challenge, but patience is a virtue.

Coming from the South you see a sign for it and just after you pass through the only tunnel pullover, stretch your legs, point and shoot. Great panoramic views and if there is a storm it is supposed to be extra nice. Apart from parking there are no facilities to speak of.
