I recently wrote a post about how to make the most out of a trip to Half Dome in Yosemite. One thing I didn’t mention is that you should take a small camera (or camera phone in this case) with you so that you can capture the jaw dropping scenes along the way – and your joy at reaching the top! Stopping to take photos and enjoy the view on the way down can make the long slog easier to take too. Here are some moments from our most recent trip. They make me smile.
