Half Dome – Yosemite Musing

The cables are officially up and in their posts, the 2 x 4 boards are in place and the trail is open. Let the hiking begin!! No permits required until Friday.


Related thought worth quoting: “Go  tell it on that mountain, over the hills and everywhere. I say go tell it on the mountain … the Half Dome cables are up.” – Traditional religious song modified.

    I just got back from a week in Yellowstone and learned that I got discounts from the Yellowstone Association with my Yosemite Association card, so wanted to let all who are YA members (currently Yosemite Conservatory) who might visit other NPs to check on potential discounts using our cards. 15% off on something you might get anyway isn’t bad. BTY – I still prefer Yos NP : )

    The steps up Sub Dome will be clear and safe to hike. But nice to get a report from someone who is going up this week.

    Is July 5 considered a holiday since the 4th of July falls on a Sunday? I’m wondering if the park requires a permit that day.

    Up, and I have 4 permits for Saturday! Unfortunately, I am out of state. Also, I have 4 permits for Saturday, June 26th. People who want them, let me know…

      Do you still have them? I would love them my family is going up on Friday. I did not get permits in time so we thought we were out of luck. Please let me know, thank you!
