I love driving up to this area and taking in the scenery. Being above the valley floor by over 3,000 feet gives you quite a vista. Washburn Point is on the south rim of Yosemite Valley near Glacier Point. This stop is less visited and has a great view of Half Dome and Vernal and Nevada Falls. I drove to Glazier Point from here to take in the sunset. The clouds were pretty nice on this day I had some nice photo opportunities.
