A great place for getting the full impact of the majesty of Yosemite and some great pictures. We stopped here during our tour of the valley. You can get some great pictures within 15 to 30 minutes.

We ate lunch here one day and ended here with the Pohona Trail (and got to see sunset). Amazing view of the valley with both El Capitan and Half Dome. Well worth a visit

It's on the road, you have to stop and watch and enjoy this amazing view. One big minus: it's very crowed, so you have to be patient to enjoy the great scenery.

It's hard to imagine the beauty of the views from this vista point. Looks back into the Valley towards Half Dome. A nust see area!

If you only have a day in YNP go to tunnel view; there are several walks from here, but simply stunning views

Tunnel View is on the way to Glacier Point next to the tunnel. You see El Capitan on the left, and Bridal Veil Falls to the right. Unfortunately, to the back of this view, you get the silhouette of this summer's massive fires.

We didn't have a car when we went to Yosemite and the only way we can see this was joining the Valley tour and it was worth the price.

This is the place to get that view into the valley with El Capitan on the left and the valley stretching out in front of you from elevation. (You can hike higher, but the view from the parking area is great.)

as you come out of the tunnel to the valley, pull over to the left or right to park. the view is outstanding!

Sorry. I am no expert on US weather. I do know that access to the park overall can be limited by weather. I suggest you consult reports of conditions at the time.
