Glacier Point provides a fantastic view of Yosemite and is accessible by car from approximately late May through October or November. We were really lucky to find the road to Glacier Point open end of May 2019.
We stayed at the Chukchansi Gold Resort & Casino about a 45 minute drive to the Yosemite South Entrance. Park entrance fee is US$35 per car, but we used our America the Beautiful Annual Pass. We’d just visited Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias and were driving further into Yosemite.
Here’s a video of part of the drive.
It was a warm sunny day, so it was amazing to see so much snow on the ground.
The views from the summit were amazing.
We weren’t bothered by any bugs, nor any bears!
