Half Dome – Yosemite National Park

Yashica 124 with Velvia100

This photograph was taken from the summit of North Dome. North Dome is located on the edge of Yosemite Valley, across from Half Dome. One can hike directly up North Dome from the valley floor or hike a trail south from Tioga Pass Road. If you hike from Tioga Pass Road, you start at a higher elevation than the summit of North Dome. That means when you reach the edge of Yosemite Valley, you get to hike downhill to get to the summit. This route is easier than hiking directly up the mountain from the valley floor, however it will take you most of the day. I took the long walk from Tiago Pass Road. It was a great hike with amazing views of the valley from the summit of North Dome. There are many more images to come, as well as stories from my time in the park.
