Drove up, stepped out, and walked the 30 feet to the Point. No, just kidding, hiked up FMT, then on to Panorama trail and JMT. Long loop, about 18 miles, started pouring rain on the home stretch. Illouette Fall along the hike is vastly underrated (more likely, not well known).

Four-Mile Trail up, Panorama Trail down. The third time I've hiked up Four-Mile. Always a scary trail, especially the part my friends and I refer to as "Switchback 60." Those who have done this trail in the early spring know what I'm talking about.

Had a hard time finding the trailhead. Ended up parking a mile away. Cool cloudy day. Heavy thunderstorms dumped on us once we made our way down at 1pm.

Have traveled this path numerous times in the past, always taken by the glimpses of Half Dome across the way, and never, never prepared enough for the three-ring circus awaiting at the top.

Climbed via the 4-mile trail with a team of ten. Continued on to Sentinal Dome then descended the Panoramic trail / Mist trail to get back to base camp (Upper Pines). It's true, the Panoramic trail has some incredible views. And the 4-mile trail ain't too shabby either.Yosemite rocks!

Some memorable visits including January 2003 as an overnight ski trip from Badger Pass and again from the valley via Nevada and Illilouette Falls and down the Four Mile Trail, plus a few driveups.

Winter is absolutely the best time for a visit and the bathrooms are the worst I've seen in North America!

A winter wonderland towards the top of 4 mile trail, big fat snowflakes just above 6000 ft. It was May! Wish I had brought some gloves.

Hiked the 4 mile trail with my girlfriend, a very casual afternoon outing. Ice cream at the top kept her cruising strong! Great way to stretch the legs after barely being able to walk from a back injury.

Drove up to Glacier Point and took the Panorama Trail down to the valley. Being someone who has never been out west untill then, I would say this was the most enjoyable hike in my life (so far. Even got to see a black bear.

Hiked up from Four Mile Trail and down to the Valley via Panorama Trail. An awesome hike with nice weather*; in fact, my favorite day hike starting from the Valley.

*Nice sun, nice clouds, some thunder & lightening, and some rain after we got on Panorama Trail from Glacier Pt, heading down to the Valley(we were lucky the rain did not start until we left GP). Fun walking in the rain & everything just seemed especially clean and refreshing. I really loved and enjoyed this hike.

I didn't technically climb this but I have an interesting note. My wife and I drove up here after climbing Half Dome to watch the sunset with some pizza and beer. Since there was a ranger at the overlook, we quietly snuck down below the overlook, in the bushes, to watch the fading light on Half Dome while enjoying our food and Half-weizen (as they called it). It was very fun.

Beautiful views. It's really cool how you can see the difference between a U-shaped glacial valley and a V-shaped river valley.
