Sunset from Sentinel Dome, Yosemite Park

Facing the Sunset from Sentinel Dome (8,100 feet/2,470 meters)

Where's the better spot for catching a sunset, Glacier Point or Sentinel Dome? Glacier Point advocates will point out that you're a mile closer to Half Dome, Clouds Rest, and the various other peaks in the east that will be getting lit up by the setting sun. From Sentinel Dome's height, though, you can also look west to catch this view of the sunset on the horizon.
