(from Sentinel Dome)
High Sierra Webcam
Rising 8,127 feet (2,477 m), the aptly-named Sentinel Dome stands guard over the Yosemite high country with 360 degrees of pure clarity. This view is hard to beat: Half Dome posing boldly in the foreground, Cloud’s Rest whispering over her shoulder; the peaks — Tenaya, Tressider, Echo and Fletcher just to name a few — standing proudly in the back row like some all-geology team photo. If you want to come enjoy this view in-person the hike is 2.2 miles (3.5 km) round-trip with a modest elevation gain of approximately 400 feet (122 m).
