Scenic Viewpoint
“A must see. In the park, off 41; an easy drive especially known for sunsets and star gazers”

Natural Feature
“Hike 2.2 miles/3.5 km round trip: Sentinel Dome is at the upper end of the easy category, due to the short but steep foray up the side of the dome to the summit. Once there, though, you'll find 360 degrees of view encompassing Yosemite Valley, the high Sierras, and (on unusually clear days) the coastal range. ”

Natural Feature
“Hike 1 mile/1.6 km round trip: The views here are almost indescribable. There's a 270-degree panorama including Half Dome, Clouds Rest, the waterfalls of the Mist Trail, dozens of peaks in the eastern Sierra range, and much of Yosemite Valley. It's probably the best place in all of Yosemite for watching the sunset. ”

“If ice-skating isn’t something that usually takes your breath away, the stunning views of the Half Dome and Glacier Point will. This outdoor ice rink offers a warming hut for storing your shoes while you skate. Outside the warming hut is a fire pit with seating perfect for taking a break from the ice. The ice rink is located at the Half Dome Village Recreation Center at shuttle bus stop #13A. Parking is also available for private vehicles. Note: This is a winter only activity that is weather permitting.”
