I remember on our second trip to Yosemite we sat around the community campfire at Little Yosemite Valley campground and a group of other backpackers told us they were hiking Half Dome the next day. "Wait, but the cables are down...?" They told us that's the best time to hike half dome! No permits... no crowds... and the reality is, the cables aren't actually OFF Half Dome, they are just laying flat on the rock instead of at waist height.
Here are a few photos from one of our highlights in 2016! May our happiness to be rooted in Christ alone, and may we enjoy this beautiful earth he has blessed us with.
