The Other Side Of Half Dome

Description: Take a look at yesterday’s photo. Now imagine hiking up the valley to Half Dome in the distance. Bear left a little and then hike up the side of the valley until you reach its top.

That’s not at all what I did for this photo, but it’s in the same area!

Truth is, I drove here.

It’s right off the Tioga Pass Road that cuts across Yosemite National Park.

This was the first time I’ve ever driven across the park and it was a great experience. It was in June that I went and I had to make sure to reserve an entry pass to the park, otherwise you are only allowed a little time to scurry across the park and leave. I wanted a little more time to loiter where my whims took me. Next time I’ll get out and hike a little. It really is a wonderful park.
