Very nice viewpoint when arriving to Yosemite park through Tioga pass. Deserves a stop. Quite busy when we were there.

Take the time to stop and take in the beautiful scenery from this location. You can see all the way to Yosemite from this point.

So glad Tioga Pass was open so we could see this other view of Half Dome. The rock outcropping was imposing, and made for some great interesting photo opportunities.

Wonderful view towards Half Dome. Being there at sunset is recommended, as Half Dome can get wonderful light.

It offers good views of half dome and the valley from the tioga pass road... you can hike a bit if you want to from this point...
