Yosemite’s Classic Half Dome Hike

Dscn1029 Dawn light touches Half Dome (at left).

Dscn1042 Looking further up the valley – typical Yosemite!  Granite and fir trees.

Dscn1044_1  The cable section near the summit.  I saw many people with grossly inadequate footwear slipping and sliding on the steep granite.  It’s no wonder there are a few fatalities each year…

Dscn1056 Fantastic views at the summit!  That’s El Capitan behind me.

Dscn1086 A typical view down Yosemite Valley in late afternoon.
