Checkpoint Charlie

Half Dome – Yosemite Musing
Get or Give permits<HERE>
    Checkpoint Charlie was the name given to the “access point” into East Berlin manned by the USA. Ffor years this was the main control of people traveling between Communist East Berlin and the Western sector. With apologies to those who were behind the Ion Curtain, I have dubbed the place at Sub Dome on Half Dome where the Rangers are inspecting hikers for permits, “Checkpoint Charlie.”

    I think what should be done to alleviate crowding is require a US passport book. This measure would likely minimize the young and irresponsible types.
