This is the larger image of the view from Sanford Point taken about 7PM. One reason I camped up there is to get the evening lighting. Was hoping for a pink sunset, but this was all that happened.

From Swinging Bridge to the El Cap Meadows Bridge, I usually walk off-trail along the Merced River instead of on the trail that is on the other side of the road. The walk along the river has lots better views, but you do have to do some wading and bushwhacking. We did a ski-tour one year in the winter on the Valley Loop Trail and that was really great. The valley rarely gets enough snow to do this, but it is wonderful when the perfect weather hits.
