SUNSET ON HALF DOME
This image was taken from Glacier Point, a well-populated viewpoint well above the valley floor.

With only enough time on our itinerary for one sunset (should it happen) and having decided this was where I wanted to see it from, it was a 45-minute drive from the valley floor to the ascending road junction, plus another 45-minute ride up the occasionally scary climb on loose gravel roads.

Some descending drivers appeared to have little concept of speed, limits of traction and space, which required one of two quick deviations to the nearside to avoid a collision.

Thankfully, we arrived up top in one piece and with plenty time to set up and await the light show.
