“A true thing of beauty”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

Be sure to stop and park just after you go thru the tunnel coming into Yosemite from the southern entrance. It is the most beautiful shot of Yosemite - a picture post card view of the beauty that is Yosemite.

“Stunning View at Sunset”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

Make this your last place of the day to visit. Get out your tripod and camera for some wonderful shots of the sun setting and the warm glow on El Cap and Bridalveil Falls.

If you have the desire, you can make a short steep hike with the trail across the street to get a different view of the valley.

“Mind blowingly spectacular viewpoint”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

Catch this viewpoint at dawn, dusk or in fact anytime. Yes you will be with lots of other snappers but it still doesn't take away from the vista.
