"Half Dome" Half Dome Tip by jag17

Half Dome, Yosemite National Park: 46 reviews and 74 photos


Standing 8,836 feet in the air, Half Dome is hard to miss anywhere in Yosemite. For those so inclined (and in good shape), a cable system is set up to climb to it's peak. Approximately 18-20 miles roundtrip. In the evening hours, the bridge near Curry Village is filled with photographers. They all anxiously wach as this massive piece turns from white to orange, as the sun sets on it.
