This view is one of the first stops you can make before entering the valley floor. It will knock your socks off! Gorgeous and breathtaking! I would also recommend the damn at Hetch Hetchy which is crazy beautiful as well. It must have been amazing before they flooded it for San Francisco's drinking water early in the 20th century. It...

Classic and iconic view of the Yosemite Valley. Unfortunately crowded and haze limited the crispness of the view. Nevertheless you can see El capitan, Bridalveil Falls and Half Dome all in one view. Lots of photographers

This is just a roadside lookout point - but it is one of the most spectacular! There's a reason everyone stops here.

On the way to Yosemite valley between Glacier point. Make a point to stop either when you travel between these 2 attractions. Good views of the valley and chance to get good photos. No walking. Just a stop point on the way so must do this.

Classic view. Touristy - yes. But for good reason. Go in early AM or later in the afternoon. after 10am and before 4pm haze & harsh sunlight will effect the view.

We toured this site on two totally different days. One day was sun filled so the reflections of the afternoon sun were great and the other day had mists and low clouds with a very different affect. Must see when viewing the Yosemite Park.

Everyone goes to the Tunnel View and takes pictures. It is always crowded with buses. But there is a secret tunnel in the tunnel that is legal to go to and a ton of fun. Walk into the tunnel on the sidewalk on the right for about 100 yards. There is tiny tunnel that cuts off to the right that... More

Breathtaking view of valley during sunset. This point is located on the way from Yosemite village to the South gate (Highway 41, before going into tunnel). I suggested you should go a bit earlier before sunset to see the mountains with orange shade!!!.

The viewing area is just that. I was hoping for a restroom or snack area. That said, the view of the mountains on either side was really stunning. I would have been frustrated if we had taken the $20 tractor ride, as they literally passed through.
