Sunrise had no crowd
Got to Glacier Point at 5 AM in September and there was no one around. Watched the sun come up over the iconic Sierra with just my sister and a few quiet deer. My recommendation? See it from Glacier Point, then climb it from Little Yosemite Valley. Just catching a glimpse from the parking lot won't do this landscape justice.
