Half Dome – Yosemite Musing
Many times we just can’t find anyone to do things with. Kids, money and other things happening. If I had to do stuff with others, I would not have knocked off half the places I’ve been. But it is more fun with others. I often get asked if I know people who folks can hike Half Dome with. In my hiking classes I ask the students to exchange email addresses and many have linked up and met knew friends. But if you just are outta gas and you still want to do some of Yosemite’s best trails, you may want to consider signing up for this 9/24 thru 9/27 trip. It is run by Lasting Adventures. They are a tour–guide company with years of Sierra experience. They are offering a fully supported trip from Tenaya Lake in Tuolumne Meadows to Sunrise Lakes to Clouds Rest to Sunrise Creek then on to Half Dome.
After the summit, you’ll spend the night at Little Yosemite Valley. Then down the Mist Trail and out. For $285 you get permits, group gear, backpacks (if needed), meals and guides. This is very good deal – heck, you couldn’t stay at Motel 7 and eat for less! They are at 1-800-513-8651 or www.LastingAdventures.com).
