Great spot to take photos of Half Dome and the Yosemite valley. A must when you visit the park. Return several times since sky varies. Views can be hazy, clear, cloudy etc so it all depends. Regardless it's a great view!

After spending the previous day at Sequoia and Kings Canyon park, we could not help noticing how differently organised this place was. We enjoyed this experience and the amazing views you also get here. Great place to come again to.

Sorry. I am no expert on US weather. I do know that access to the park overall can be limited by weather. I suggest you consult reports of conditions at the time.
