Yosemite National Park in Mariposa County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
Glacier Point Hotel
For generations, Glacier Point has been one of the most popular destinations in all of Yosemite. Nearly one million visitors enjoy the magnificent vistas of the High Sierra and Yosemite Valley from this site each year. Glacier Point has suffered because of its popularity. The unhealed scars of heavy use, previous development, and the 1969 fire required substantial rehabilitation and revegetation in 1997.
Erected by Yosemite Fund.
