Here I am at the top!

getting ready to go up the cables!! Ah!

hiking the switch-backs made me panic a helped conquer my fear of heights
bottom of vernal falls

in the beginning (sorry, my pictures are backward!)

I have wanted to climb half-dome for a long time. I knew it would be hard, but I had no idea what it would be like until experiencing it first hand. Most of it was long, painful, challenging, exhausting.

The cables and the top of the dome make it all worth it.

I will never go again without ski poles.

I loved talking with the people. And I had the best company. What a memorable experience!

Yay, Sarah! I am so proud of you. Yosemite is quite possibly my favorite natural place on the planet. And I love being on top of Half Dome. We'll have to go together someday when our paths cross again in California.
