Monday is Half Dome Day!

IMG_0584I can’t believe the day is almost here! Hiking to the top of Half Dome has been on my bucket list for years.  This year my BFF and I made the decision that we could make it happen this summer.  We narrowed down 8 dates and applied for the permits during the lottery back in March.  We got our 3rd choice date and here we are only a few days away! 

82021B0D-389A-4EF4-8C75-86B35C371962We have trained.  We have planned.  We are excited…but also slightly nervous.  If you are curious about the nervous part, go to YouTube and search “Half Dome Cables”.

FullSizeRenderWe are driving to Yosemite Sunday, a roughly 4 hour drive for us.  Spending the night and hiking out Monday.  The packing has begun.  I can’t wait to share this adventure with you guys and maybe some of you might even want to tackle this yourself someday 😉

    I hiked Half Dome in September with a backcountry overnight permit. It was a last minute trip and a total lark on which I walked into the wilderness office. I was amazed I got one! I had not trained. My knees took over a week to forgive me. I hope to do it again, and I will take the longer John Muir Trail down! 😉

      Doing the Mist Trail up and John Muir down was nice because there are also less people on John Muir. Mist Trail gets so crowded! Congrats!! It was amazing up there!
