Stargaze at Olmsted Point
Yosemite › Olmsted Point Overlook
Added by Eric Bennett
Amazing Star. Gazing. Awesome View of Sunrise. Right 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.

When it's winter time, one of the best things you can do is experience the snow in the Eastern Sierra! If you've ever been hiking and/or backpacking in the Sierra, you know it's one of the most beaut.
