Porcupine Creek Trail  Sucess!

Easy day hike from Tioga Road. Great view of Half Dome, Cloud's Rest and Tenaya Canyon. I also had fine views of a traffic jam in Yosemite Valley - at least I wasn't stuck in it.

Back in 2002, remember it being a fairly easy hike with outstanding views

Route: Porcupine Creek, Date 07.15.07  Sucess!

Lotsa views for little effort... and Half Dome looks great from this vantage point. Had lunch in San Francisco, drove up to Tioga Pass and was still able to squeeze this little hike in before sunset.

I was sick....  Sucess!

...but made it. I had to abort a previous trip to the summit when I was younger for the same reason.

A great hike on the way home on 120  Sucess!

I couldn't resist taking Juan on his first hike overlooking Yosemeite Valley after he passed on the Sunrise Lakes-Clouds Rest-Half Dome-Happy Isles hike two days earlier. I was impressed by the scenic, uncrowded trail and the great views of Half Dome. Took about 3 and 1/2 hours including almost an hour taking in views around the dome. We had warmed up by hiking Pothole Dome and swimming in the Tuolomne River after closing up camp in Tuolomne Meadows.

Short hike from 120  Sucess!

A nice little hike from Highway 120 - nice to get away from the valley crowds. Still seemed crowded compared to SEKI though!

Via Yosemite Falls Trail  Sucess!

Dayhiked this with my brother the week before dayhiking Half Dome. The trail was mostly though woods past Yosemite Point, so if I were to do it again, it would be via Tenaya Canyon. Incredible view of half dome from the summit.

Route Climbed: Porcupine Creek Trail  Sucess!

Turned this into a great 11+ mile one way hike from Tioga road to Yosemite Valley. Too bad the waterfall was dry, but the day use area at the top of the falls is very interesting. The granite is polished and very smooth with lots of neat crystal clear pools, saw quite a few trout in the pools.

Climbed it during backpack trip: late-May 2000  Sucess!

Three of us hit North Dome during a 3-day backpack in Yosemite. Started at the bottom of the falls and came out by Mirror Lake. Great views of the valley from the top of North Dome.
