As you are doing your Half Dome planning, if you don’t know it, the park admission is $20 a car. Consider getting an America The Beautiful Pass. This card is good for one year and costs $80. I prefer this to the $20 one-shot each time fee to get into Yosemite. You and other people in your car can get into any USDA FS, NPS, USFWS, BLM and Reclamation facility nationwide. Not a bad deal if you plan to get off the couch this year. You’ll need a photo ID so you really can’t lend it out. Buy them at the gate or on-line <HERE>.
An even better deal: if you are a geezer 62 or older, you can get a lifetime pass for $10. Hmmmm, do they think 62 is a safe bet with our life expectancy? A real deal from your US Government. Jump on it before it goes away. Budgets you know.
