Half Dome and Clouds Rest

Seen from Glacier Point. On a different day in a different year, some friends and I hiked from Toulumne Meadows on the John Muir Trai, took a detour over Clouds Rest (seen here on the left) and then climbed Half Dome. It was a 30 mile day, that is the most I have ever hiked in one day, and maybe ever will. This photo has lots of memories for me.

Re: wow

Thanks, i have really been working on the morning and evening photos. Sometimes the subtle colors come out in low light.

Re: I can't think of any words ...

You are right, I think about standing there very often.

Me too

A sight also familiar to me, and I never wanted to leave this place, and made it 3 times. The Half Dome hike is a tough yet unforgettable trip.

Re: Me too

just made my third trip to the top a couple weeks ago. We went from Toulumne Meadows to Clouds Rest, to Half Dome and on to the Valley, great trip but it takes me a while to recover from a 30 mile day.

Re: Me too

It got at my knees on the way down. Though nowadays I don't any issues with them. I think I'm becoming younger, because I think way!
