Amazing StarGazingAwesome View of SunriseRight next to Road/Parking Area
Just off the side of the highway, look for the pullout for Olmsted Point on your Map. There is a parking area with about 25 parking spots and the lookout point with the tree is right next to there. Come in the summertime and during a new moon to get the best views of the Milky Way. Never crowded, more low key spot spot for viewing and photography than Glacier Point.

Although you have to drive a bit to get there it's worth it. Really nice spot and the night sky it just takes your breath away. Best time to go there is after 12-1 am, before that there's still some traffic and the lights will mess with your photos.
