It's a must for anyone who visit Yosemite. The sightseeing is the best I have ever been. If there is a place made by magical creatures, you have to go to glacier point to see it.

I would love to visit here in every season! The view of the valley is amazing and the perspective of Half Dome and Yosemite Falls is breathtaking.

This viewpoint is not located on the main road, you have to take a detour (around 15 km, 30 minutes). But it's absolutely worth it, this is one of the most unforgettable views in the park. You are so high that it feels like you can see all the park from there. It's always crowded here and it might be... More

At the top of the world here, you have a great view of the Yosemite Valley and Half dome. There is a short walk and it is wheelchair friendly. Parking can be hard sometime but make sure you don't sit and wait at first spot because there is lots of parking at back of parking lot. The restrooms are a... More

Wow. What an amazing view. Be sure to go for the sunset, this is beautiful. You will need to leave early as many others will drive there at this time and it's difficult to find a spot to take a photo on a calm night. Most people were really accomodating and moved to let our family get a shot.

We had an amazing hike to the top of Half Done the day before going to Glacier Point so our expectations were rather low, particularly since the skies were overcast and looked dismal for sunset viewing. Boy were we wrong! It was the most beautiful sunset I have seen in my 50 plus years. The only reason we decided to... More

I went early in the morning to avoid the crowds and parking hassles. It was absolutely beautiful. I took tons of photos and video before the massive crowds arrived. I've heard that the lighting (for photos) is better in the evening, but I was still pleased with the results.

Yosemite is a stunning place with so much to see and we had only 1 day. Someone in the visitor centre recommended Glacier Point and since we didn't have time we drove all the way up. The drive is a bit windy, I cant remember right now how long but by the time we walked Sentinel Dome and drove there... More
