Glacier Point provides a unique vantage point to peer down 3000 feet to the floor of Yosemite Valley. Views of Yosemite Falls, Half Dome, Vernal/Nevada Falls and several other notable landmarks are easily seen, not to mention the numerous ant sized cars and buildings that are scattered across the valley. One of the most iconic formations at Glacier Point itself is Overhanging Rock.
Whenever I think of Overhanging Rock I can’t help but think of the iconic photo of two women dancing on it by George Fiske. The photo has impact, but if you’ve ever stood at this lookout and peer down the 3000 feet below it takes on a whole new level of impact. Fascinating to think that a location such as this has been attracting people for so long. It highlights the timeless wonder that Yosemite Valley provides.
