Incredible views  Sucess!

Although the views were just breathtaking, the 9-mile approach was definitely lengthy... Departed the roadway parking lot at 16.31, & returned around 18.37. Took an interesting 4th-class variation to the L of centre when coming from the road. Turns out the R-hand side is really mellow. One of the (if not THE) best views in The Valley- one can see everything from the Cathedral Rocks to El Cap to Yosemite Falls (all 3 of them) to Conness to Half Dome to Lyell to Ritter to..... Combination of snow, flowing falls, & solitude (I assume that the place is a relative madhouse in the summer) made this excursion particularly rewarding.

The Four Mile trail  Sucess!

Up from the Valley and then over to the Dome. One of my favorite trails in Yosemite. i love that view from the top of the Dome

From Glacier Point  Sucess!

A nice hike from Glacier Point only spoiled by seeing many their ahead of us who had come by car.

From Glacier Point  Sucess!

While checking out Glacier Point, we decided to hike up to Sentinel Dome. Several spots along the trail with awesome views. One of many great hikes in Yosemite.

Tagged this peak on the way back from Glacier Point. Pretty cool views.

Easy but worth it...  Sucess!

After a long hike the day before (North Dome) we wimped out on another long hike, so we drove around to the trail from Glacier Point Rd. The best views of the valley imo.

I made it...  Sucess! I might as well sign it. Want to really punish yourself? Tack this onto a trip up the Four Mile Trail and then descend the Pohono Trail. Nasty!

Route: Glacier Pt. from Badger Pass; Date: 02.17.07  Sucess!

Nice 18+ mile RT XC Ski trip from Badger Pass - amazing 360 degree winter-scape snow-dusted views, but was warm enough that the waterfalls were flowing. Loved having this beautiful summit all to myself on an absolutely perfect day. Life is good.

Great views

Easy walk, gorgeous views, be sure to include the fissures and make a loop.

Sorry to hear that the tree is gone!

Revisited After 1/4 Century  Sucess!

The TREE was gone, but it was nevertheless nostalgic....

Early Climb  Sucess!

Started the climb just after watching the sunrise over half dome from a pull out. Easy hike. Didn't see a soul the entire time i was on the trail or on the summit, i guess mostly because much of the trail was still covered in snow, and it was very early in the morning.

Southeast Slope Route  Sucess!

Climbed this with my better half and girls. 360 degree views are amazing!

Nice Jaunt  Sucess!

Nice to do to get some fresh air after that windy road on the way to Glacier point! The views are awesome. for more see my trip report

Short hike, great views.  Sucess!

Lengthen it by going to the fissures on the backside. Not as many people do the loop. You won't have solitude, but it is quieter.
