  • Arriving at the parking lot just climb a little bit the hill in front to have in front of you an incredible scenery! We are literally amazed at the beauty that opens up to our eyes.

  • We stopped st Olmsted point on our drive from the Yosemite valley out to Tuolumne meadows. This is a great stopping point, and you get a great view of the other side of halfdome.  more »

  • This place is a true gem. Just right off the road which made it easy to visit with our young one. Great sunset views of half dome and tenaya lake from here. There were hardly any people here compared to the lower valley. I bet this is a great star gazing spot.
  • Nature at its best. On our way to Yosemite and came across this place. Nice breeze circling in valley make you feel relaxed. One of the highest peaks in Yosemite. This scenic view will give a glimpse on Yosemite in front of your drive. There is small paved path little down the hill to 'feel' mighty Yosemite.
