More Viewpoints: Valley View!

Yosemite Valley, CA, United States
10 Kudos
Yosemite National Park is breathtaking! There are plenty of viewpoints around the the park and one of the popular ones is Valley View! It is located in the Northside Drive of the park also close to the Pohono bridge. My cousins and I stopped here and got awesome photos of the view and the surrounding area of the park. I really wanted to check this out during sunset/ sunrise, but it was quiet busy when we went and also we had a long hike ahead the next day. Regardless this is a view point that is popular to many visitors. You can also see the Bridalveil falls from this viewpoint I believe.
