In the evening, you're very close to Sentinel Bridge and a famous view of Half Dome. Best time to take a picture is close to sunset, and there were several photographers with fancy equipment. I got this with a fairly cheap Canon. Is that a picture of Charles de Gaulle on Half Dome?
Deer hang out between the Pizza Shack and the Lounge, which has enough WiFi capacity to run two computers at the same time, so you see a lot of people just staring into screens and waiting.
