I love Yosemite and have spent a lot of time there, however I have never felt the need to do this. I am sure it is a lovely view. My oldest son did it and enjoyed it. He did not get the fear of heights gene I guess. Crock Pot, Bucketlist, Yosemite National Parks, Buckets Lists, Climbing Half, Places, Half Domes, Domes Cable, Teacher Resources
View of Half Dome, Yosemite I have hiked this trail with friends a number of times. It starts at Glacier Point and goes 8 miles past 3 waterfalls, down into the valley. The most memorable end to the hike involved a bottle of chilled, hard cider. Nothing had ever tasted so good before, nor has since!
The Yosemite park covers 761,268 acres. The California Gold Rush in the mid-19th century dramatically increased white travel in the area. Entrepreneur James Mason Hutching's tourism efforts between 1855 & 1860 led to an increase in travel to Yosemite.
