The Legend of Half Dome
Because Half Dome is often a tough climb for first-time visitors, we require a three-night, four-day stay for ascents—for our guests to properly acclimate to Yosemite’s mile-high cliffs and to see the National Park and Half Dome in the correct way, the way naturalist John Muir would approve of.
We explained this to Christian and Lina, and they vigorously agreed. On their honeymoon, they aimed to explore the hidden corners of America and spend time privately with one another (and what better place than the Yosemite wilderness?), while not to compromising their safety.
And after two days of river crossings, walking pathways alongside majestic wildlife, and exploring miles of Yosemite’s trails beyond the crowds, we arrived at our staging campsite at the base of Half Dome.
