Brief Directions

The Sentinel Dome trailhead is at a parking lot on the north side of Glacier Point Road a few miles before reaching Glacier Point itself. It is a little more than a mile to the top of the dome.

Description

This was the most spectacular sunset I have seen in Yosemite. Everyone else had abandoned the top of Sentinel Dome because of the grey overcast sky. I saw a gap in the clouds to the west and decided to stick it out through sunset. Just as the sun reached the horizon, the sky to the east exploded in pink. This 5 shot horizontal panorama doesn't fully convey the beauty of the scene, but it does make a nice memory. I ended up hiking down in the rain.
