Postcard view but the place was so crowed with tourist there were no parking. It was difficult to take good photos with so many people around.

As far as Yosemite Valley views go this is the spot. It is worth the drive or bus ride or however you can get there. There is not a bad time of day and the view is classic Yosemite.

Stop here and take a stunning picture of El Capitan, Half-dome, etc. It is wonderful. It is called Tunnel View because the pull-out is right at the mouth of a long tunnel. Watch for the signs and park in the small parking lot at the pull-out. It is worth the stop.

The view is spectacular! I got some beautiful photographs. I don't think you can appreciate Tunnel View close up, it has to been seen from a distance.

Just a short drive from the West entrance you get a great view of the valley (tunnel) from a height above the valley floor. It's on the way to Glacier Point so stop and get a photo/view on your way up the mountain.

This is an amazing view of Yosemite of Half Dome, El Capitan and Bridal Veil Falls. You have to stop and enjoy it! When we were there, there were still forest fires burning, so the valley was smoky/hazy. Even still it was a tremendous view with great scenery. If you are coming out of the tunnel (traveling north) be careful,... More

Gives a very good view of Yosemite Valley, including El Capitan and Half Dome. Also, you can catch the alpenglow effect if you are present around sunset time.

Good views only spoiled by going in August as the view should have had wonderful views of Bridalveil falls and didn't due to lack of water.
