Top 10 Spots to Picture Half Dome in Yosemite
COOK’S MEADOW: Located centrally in the Yosemite Valley near the trailhead to the Lower Yosemite Falls.
SENTINEL DR BRIDGE: Enjoy glassy reflections off the Merced River in the Yosemite Valley.
STONEMAN MEADOW: Experience the magnitude of Half Dome as it towers over this meadow (make sure to honor the meadow and stay on the boardwalk)
GLACIER POINT: A beautiful spot for both sunrise & sunset (however much less crowds in the morning)
GLACIER POINT RD: Capture Half Dome with a magnificent horseshoe bend in the foreground (park at Glacier Point and hike up the road about 1/4 mile)
WASHBURN POINT: Enjoy a perfect profile of Half Dome along Glacier Point Rd.
SENTINEL DOME: Make the 1 mile hike from the Taft Point Trailhead to experience panoramic views of El Capitan, Yosemite Falls & Half Dome from above.
TUNNEL VIEW: Another great spot for sunrise or sunset, this view along Highway 41 (Wawona Rd) was made famous by Ansel Adams.
HALF DOME VIEW: As you drive south along Big Oak Rd, this is the first glimpse of Half Dome, perfectly wedged in the mountain-scape.
OLMSTED POINT: One of the few spots to view Half Dome from Tioga Pass Rd, this is an easy (but busy) stop.
