Classic View

Fantastic view of Yosemite Valley with perhaps the best wireless availability in the whole national park (AT&T, Verizon).

Do not miss this sight in Yosemite. It's so beautiful. We thought going in Feb. would have less crowds , but it was loaded with people, we could hardly find a place to park to see the sights. The trails were loaded with people, but it was fun and worth the hassles.

The Tunnel View makes me feel as though I'm standing in the shoes of Ansel Adams. Some of his most wonderful pictures were made from this very spot. From here you see the entire Yosemite Valley with the mountains rising straight up to frame it. A sight that must not be missed. One note... if you want to take photos... More

When you visit Yosemite park this is one of the things you have to see. It doesn't take you long to visit this point when entering Yosemite park from the west. You don't have to stay long to enjoy the view, but it's a great place to do. Enjoy the view!

It was fresh but not cold. We travelled up from route 140 el portal road on friday 3rd of Feb, following the Merced river, what an amazing drive, we paid $30 for the car entry, this gives you 7 days pass, the ranger at the gatehouse was a lovely young lady who gave us a warm welcome to the park....

The views are amazing, careful with the winter weather, car park can be icy in patches but the views are worth it

When you are driving into the Yosemite Valley on Highway 41, when you exit the tunnel and arrive at the view of Yosemite from afar, it is breathtaking. There is ample parking and the vista is glorious.

Hitting all the spots along this National Park is a day you will remember. Everywhere we went just eye popping views.

Amazing view no matter what time of the year or what time of the day you visit!!! It is especially beautiful if you visit during the sunrise or sunset in the months of April-June when the waterfalls are running strong.

Although it is terribly crowded with sight-seers, this is worth the wait. I like this view the best in the park.
