Taft Point probably provides the best vantage point to view El Capitan from above. I had seen several photos of this massive block of granite before visiting Yosemite and I mostly yawned. But I must say that El Capitan is most impressive when viewed in person. It is especially impressive when viwed from the valley floor, but we will get to that later.

Check out the photo and see how small and insignificant the Merced River looks next to mighty El Capitan.
