The view from Glacier Point is surely one of the most spectacular in the world. Half Dome occupies center stage, brooding over slickrock Tenaya Canyon and Mirror Lake at the east end of Yosemite Valley.
To the right the Merced River drops into the valley over the Giant Staircase as Nevada and Vernal Falls. Beyond lie rounded Mount Starr King and the darker colored Clark Range. Interpretive panels at the rim help you identify the distant peaks.
