When you are away from home for any period of time, the one thing to look forward to is sleeping in your own bed. But when your bed away from home is right here next to Half Dome in Yosemite, you’re in no hurry to return. I took these two photos of Half Dome on a backpack trip I guided last weekend. The first one was at sunrise from camp and the second one was from a successful summit of Clouds Rest later that day.
Many people ask me where is the best place to view a sunset in Yosemite. My first answer is always Glacier Point when the road is open. The road opened last Friday, and I was fortunate enough to visit in the late afternoon. It wasn’t quite sunset, but it still took our breath away. Here is the panorama shot that inspired me to form a new Category for this blog.
