Go to a high point, take in the sights, come back, post the selfies on Facebook and then forget all about it – at least that’s how your typical high view-point trip goes. But you won’t do that to Glacier Point. This place is going to reach into your internet-saturated sould and pull you right back into Mother Nature’s arms. It could be the shimmering waterfalls or the ridiculously pink and pretty sunsets or everything! Whether you get there by tour bus (Summer), ski over the Badger Pass Ski Area (Winter) or the Four Mile Trail (June – November) – once you’re at the top you’ll realise that it was worth just about anything to get there. The magnificent vista will treat you to the sight of nearly the entire Yosemite Valley, the Half Dome, the Vernal Fall, the Nevada Fall and Clouds’ Rest. For the best experience, come during sunrise or sunset. The trip upto the point will take you at least 2 hours and may take upto four, so be sure to stock up on food and drink. You’ll usually find plenty of other tourists there.
