Half Dome
#2 of 29 Sights & Landmarks in Yosemite National Park
Myself and several others aged 15-42 did this hike and had a blast!!! Some were scared, some opted out of hiking the dome, but all had fun and enjoyed the view along the way!
We brought plenty of water and snacks and were in good shape, so the hike was a fantastic challenge with amazing views and some scary climbing.

Olmsted Point
#5 of 29 Sights & Landmarks in Yosemite National Park
Especially for the views (and photography), but also to stretch, walk around the smooth etched glacial rock, or take a short hike, including over the rocks a short distance from the road, for a better view of the...
One can wander the rocks around the point endlessly for a much wider and richer range of views, and our thought is that the one drawback is how easily one can simply lose themselves among the rocks and trees.

Tuolumne Grove of Giant Sequoias

We had seen so many jaw-dropping sights, at the end, we wanted to see sequoias, so drove this way out, and it was a great quicker walk down the hill, couple miles, enjoying every view.
The trail is nice and gentle for a family to do and the views are stunning.

Right on the western edge of Tuolumne Meadows sits this huge rock face that juts up above the meadows that provides amazing views of the meadows and surrounding mountains.
We walked to the far north side of the dome to get great views of the back country and then to the top which is the western side for great views of Cathedral Peak and others.
