Half Dome Hike

Sunset from the top of Yosemite’s iconic Half dome



Half Dome is one of the must do hikes in Yosemite. It can be done as a challenging day hike or what i’d recommend is to spend a night camping along the way and catch either the sunrise or sunset on top of half dome. the climb of the actual dome will be nerve-wracking in the dark but the reward is something truely unforgettable. Bring rubber gloves for the actual hike up the ladder, it doesn’t seem that steep in photographs but i assure you it is and you’ll need the grip of those rubber gloves around the steel cables when you palms get sweaty and sore.
