Half Dome – Yosemite Musing
What is going on up in the park? Already 134% of normal snow pack and more coming down today. All bets for when the cables will be up are off. The May 21 target has slipped. Please go to my website and check the Road and Park Conditions button in the top right for the latest. I’m glad my next trip is not until June 23. I have 19 Friends and Family joining me for an “un-led” and “be self-sufficient” hike up to the dome. It’s a weekday so no permits needed. Fer shur the trails will be clear by then and the cables up – I hope! Sorry to all the people who planned a May trip. You know for next time. June 2009 was the rainiest I’ve seen in along time and My 2010 is antgoher odd one. Go figure.
One of my sidelines is lecturing on Cruise ships and I will be on a Crystal Cruise until the end of May. Ports of call include Dubai, Petra, Luxor and Cairo. Sweeeet. So I will be “outta pocket” and hard to get ahold of for a while. I will have to cut down on the blog due to the high cost of Internet at sea, but will do my best. I’d like to make an offer to all you English majors out there. How about you write up a story for the blog and email it to me (MrHalfDome@gmail.com) and then I can do a quick edit and copy/paste it as a Guest Blog. Surely you have some fun anecdotes or Yosemite information to share. Check back to join in the fun.
