Half Dome – Yosemite Musing
Get or Give Half Dome permits<HERE>
     First the sign:


Then the bozos on the Silver apron, 100 feet from the sign. Darwin award candidates.


In 2005 a guy went over Vernal Fall


     I’ll be up at the park this weekend for a meeting with our German bureau. Sonke K. flew in from Hamburg and came down with a horrendous cold. Wanted to hike North Dome, but he is too sick. We may just hang around the valley.
     In other news: If you read this in time to do any good – on Saturday, September 25, Yosemite will celebrate National Public Lands Day. Free admission!
     Dates to remember:  Yosemite was designated by an Act of Congress on October 1, 1890, making this the 120th birthday of the park. And Oct 12 is the day that George Anderson first went up Half Dome in 1875. We are not worthy.

    What makes the apron so dangerous is not just the smooth granite and swift currents. All along the shallow edges of the river, the granite is coated with nearly invisible algae. Even with excellent hiking boots, you have nearly no traction. It feels like the rock is coated with vaseline.
