Hike to the Top of Half Dome
A Life-Changing Experience in Yosemite National Park 

Hike to the top of Half Dome - a life-changing experience.

August 12th - 2nd annual Half Dome hike/climb
17-mile round trip - 4880 feet vertical climb

Up at 4:30. Leave campsite by 5. On the trailhead by 6:30. Hang out at top ~2 hours. Back by sunset
Buy a t-shirt that says I MADE IT TO THE TOP, & eat like horse at all-u-can-eat salad bar

Next day: Eat Advil like candy & try to walk w/out bending legs much
Say, ooh & aah a lot

After you recuperate, you feel incredibly strong, almost invincible.

Half Dome rocks! Can hardly sleep night before
See HERE for an Intro to the Yosemite vacation

It's true that I was last to the top, 
but only cuz I wanted to make sure everyone first made it up safely =)

A 7-minute broadband streaming video of this trip is available
If you have a dial-up connection, you'll first need to download the file (Real video, 12MB).

Does not wisdom cry? and understanding put forth her voice?
She stands in the top of high places ..

- Proverbs 8: 1,2
