Hear me now and listen to me later.
Once again, I highly suggest you book a place to stay for the 2015 Half Dome hiking season. There may be no room at the Inn if you hold off until spring.
Get your place now, then target your lottery application around that date (s). Remember, if you don’t get the date of your dreams, you can cancel the room 7 days in advance.

I have booked 2-nights at the Curry Village tent cabins for each month of the 2015 summer. Now, I may not do Half Dome each of those times, but I can rest easy….that I will rest easy those dates.
Tent cabins are still wide open. After the Holiday rush, people will get more serious. AND how about your trip to Little Yosemite Valley with a Wilderness permit? It’s a 6-month window and you’ve already lost late May and early June.
It looks like the price rises proposed for admission and camping may sail through. I’ve not heard of arguments in the press or elsewhere. So save your pennies.
Unrelated thought worth quoting: “I got me a complication and it’s an only child. Concernin’ my reputation as something more than wild. I know it serves me right but I can’t sleep at night. Have to hide my face or go some other place.” – Talk Talk – The Music Machine
