The pull out a mile back gives a preview, but this is still one of the most breath taking views of the Yosemite granite formations and waterfalls that can be imagined.

Incredible view through the whole Yosemite Valley. You can clearly see how it was formed by glaciers. Breathtaking!

Possibly the best place to take a photo in the entire park! You get to see most of the highlights from here and you can get a real sense of the sheer scale. It be carefull it's icy as the carpark can be like a ice skating rink.

We have been there last summer. The place has amazing views. Better go there earlier when there is no many people so you can enjoy views alone

Not too much to do in this location but it's a 'must do' quick stop for that breathtaking view. Parking can be a bit of a problem.

This viewpoint is a great lookout for a view over the whole valley. Definitely worth a visit. Unfortunately California was in a drought, so the waterfalls were all dry but the view from here is still spectacular.
