Half Dome – Yosemite Musing
How did yall do on your permit quest?? I was in El Portal and had to pay $9 for internet at the Cedar Lodge but got up and was on line for the 7 am stampede. I got a few for Sept and Oct. I will continue to give some out at my talks and thru this blog. I will probably be asking some ez questions out of my book, “One Best Hike: Yosemite’s Half Dome” as an incentive for you to get it. Believe me the royalty is squat, but you need to read how to do the hike safely. REI carries it and you can also go to my website and order thru Amazon.com. If you didn’t get permits, hike Cloud’s Rest or Yosemite Falls instead.
Sorry that everyone who wanted to do this hike on weekends can’t. So ya gotta burn a vacation day and go on a weekday. It’s worth it. People fly from all over the world to do it! I met a young couple from Berlin who were so excited to be here and they loved Yosemite. More on my 3 days at the park this week. It was G O R G E O U S!!
