Watch this great cartoon describing the history of the Half Dome hike up the cables.

This is a great carton summary of Half Dome.   I do not know the creator, Aaron Robbins, but would love to meet him. Anyone know him?  He is not related to the famous Royal Robbins.

One error – he shows the cleft of Half Dome (vertical wall) existing whilst stillgranite.  Nope, it wa above the surface when it exfoliated off.

Here’s a shot of the road at Virginia Lake – just north of Lee Vining on the eastern side of Yosemite. Wow. The HD trail won’t open for a while.

Unrelated thought worth quoting: “Don’t look back, a new day is breakin’. It’s been too long since I felt this way. I don’t mind where I get taken. the road is callin’. Today is the day. – Boston
