Half Dome – Yosemite Musing
After reaching your goal of summiting Half Dome, you may want to tackle other adventures. Here’s a list of some very good outfitters that can take you anywhere from Spain to South America to Timbuktu. I’ll leave you to do the Google search to contact them. KE Adventure Travel, Country Walkers, Sierra Club Outings, Destination Highlights, Off the Beaten Path, Peregrine Adventures, The Wayfarers, the World Outdoors, Cross Country International. Just do it!
I just went through my www.HikeHalfDome.com and tested all the links. Everything seems to still be up and running. I also checked out the websites I have listed under “Miscellaneous.” I thought I’d bring them here if you are really bored you can check them out. I’m happy with the content – good stuff here.
