9 June 2010

7 of us hiked from Curry Village to the base of Half Dome (cables were in place, but no posts or slats, so we stopped at the subdome). We went up via the Mist Trail, and returned via the John Muir trail. It was the first time for 3 of us. The waterfalls were in full thunder all over the valley, and the weather was nearly perfect, although we did get some clouds over Half Dome, and heard one distant thunderclap as we started back. We spent 10 1/2 hours, with a few breaks here and there.

The original (full size and quality) picture can then be viewed by clicking in turn on
the medium size picture (warning, these are large, typically about 3 MBytes,
so the can be slow to load, and might be too large for your monitor.
The large images are good for seeing fine detail, and for printing

Movies are MPEG4 movies, and the thumbnail gives the size of the movie.
