Two years ago I made a free Half Dome app for Everytrail.com. They are owned by Trip Advisor. It’s very comprehensive with a ton of info about the trail, photos, videos. I met a man who actually had his iPhone and was using it along the hike.
It’s been viewed over 200,000 times. That’s no typo – 200K. Whew. I spent a lot of time building it and hope you take the time to download it. Did I say FREE? – yup! It’s all part of the sharing of info. It’s going to be dark for 4 months until we can scramble to get permits for the late May opening. There may be some changes to the current lottery to allow MORE people to do the hike. As I find out, I’ll blog about the news.
Autumn at the Yosemite is very mellow. But carry chains; mountain weather can change rapidly. Think about heading up mid-Fed for the Horsetail Fall orange glow phenomenon.
Unrelated thought worth quoting: “There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.” – Colin Powell
