Half Dome

 We have waited six whole months to hike Half Dome in Yosemite. We applied for our permit a long long time ago and I was thrilled that the time was finally here. The hike up to our base camp was very hard the first day. I cried. Maybe it was because I wasn't eating as much as I should have... living off of GORP. Once we set up camp we had a celebratory dinner and went to sleep to catch an early morning hike up the dome. The trip up the side of the dome is terrifying and you can tell by the look on my face:
It was nice to sit down and relax up there. The top of the dome is as big as a football field but you don't want to run too far or you might just slide of the side of the limestone wall
We hiked down the Mist Trail near Vernal Falls and it was beautiful:
