Half Dome Hike - Yosemite
Friday, July 28, 2006
Nine friends spend an adventurous few days in beautiful Yosemite enjoying the sites. The highlight of the trip was our hike to Half Dome! We started out before dawn and made our way up the Mist Trail past Vernal and Nevada Falls. We then joined up with the John Muir Trail which led us to the Half Dome trail.  This trail included scaling our way up Quarter Dome to the bottom of Half Dome. Most ascended to the top of Half Dome via a very steep climb with cables. For the trip down we took the John Muir Trail. We made it back to our cabin by sunset. The final figures are not out yet but we roughly did 17 miles round trip in about 14 hours.
