Beyond Words...

This place is classic. There really isn't a way to describe how incredible this spot is. There is a parking lot and a store here for good reason. Definitely try to see this place when there is a clearing storm! The clouds are unreal!

This view at night never gets old

Love going up to Glacier Point to star gaze. And having my best friend, Dakota, give his Star Program up there is always the icing on the cake. (Go to his program sometime while you're in the Valley, he rocks!)

Iconic View

This is definitely one of the iconic views of Yosemite. If you're here on a winter weekday you'll likely have it yourself or just with a few others, despite the 12-mile xc trip the weekends are still busy.
