Little Half Dome Discovered at Yosemite

From Olmsted Point on the Tioga Road, you can clearly see Half Dome out in the distance. The view is a lot different than we normally see from the Valley. I took this shot yesterday and you can see Sub Dome and the main bump of Half Dome.

While walking the last mile to Half Dome recently, I looked out to the right, towards Clouds Rest and there before me sat a miniature Half Dome. Compare this view with the one above.

Wow – pretty darn close to the same. As I walked over to give it a look, I could see a trail of ants working their way to the top. . . . just like on the real Half Dome. The only thing missing from a true out-of-body experience would have been teeny tiny cables going up. This one is only about 5 feet high.  Ah, the things the mind does when deprived of water.
