As you'd imagine, driving up to Glacier Point is quite windy, and could be tough if your loaded down in an economy class car. Glacier View is probably the best panoramic view you can expect to get while at Yosemite. Our first glimpse of Half Dome took our breath away. It's one thing to read about it and see someone else's pictures or postcards. It's another thing to experience this magnificent view for yourself.
This was the first time either of us had visited the park, but we know it won't be our last. From Glacier Point we could see Half Dome, Yosemite Valley, Nevada and Vernal Falls, the Granite Arches and the far reaches of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. It was truly awesome. At the risk of sounding too philosophical; this vista took my mind off of the rat race and really put living in a whole new perspective for me.
