Our first view of the Yosemite Valley while driving in on Hwy 120 was stunning to say the least.
After settling in to our cabin we had just enough daylight left to hike Sentinel Dome from Glacier Point. The top of the Dome had spectacular views and the descent offered a lovely sunset.

The next day, we drove into the valley to get the views up rather than the views down. We also stopped by this area to soak our feet after the long Mist Trail hike.
