New Half Dome book

It is with great pride that I announce the release of the 2nd Edition of my book, “One Best Hike: Yosemite’s Half Dome.”

I grew the text by 30% and doubled the photos. I added several historical vignettes and included GPS markers for all the points of interest. I did a big expansion of the geology and history sections. I am jazzed. The price bumped up $2.00 to $14.95 list but it is well worth it. There is also an e-book version for Kindle and iPAD. Cool. I’m most proud that Mr. Royal Robbins, the first man to climb the face of Half Dome, wrote the forward. Even if you have the original, this 2nd edition got even better.

The book should be trickling into bookstores, REI and the Park. It is on Amazon now through a link on my STORE page. If interested, I will mail you a signed copy for $12.95 plus CA tax and $2.00 shipping. Email me to MrHalfDome at

Other news: Tioga Raod opens Monday.
