Hiking to the top of Half Dome is a way to spend a day in Yosemite!
Me and my two teens started 05.30am from Curry Village and followed the signs.
Well, the signs is pretty bad all the way, so bring our own map!
We did not, we just followed the signs, and discovered that we been walking much longer than needed. (John Mist trail or something like that). We walked the Nevada Falls down
That said, the trail we walked up is a much easier trail rather than do the Nevada Falls trail. It takes a good hour longer, but is not that steep,
What we will remember the most is actually the friendliness you Americans (after a while we could tell who was Americans and who's not) show when hiking! Back home in Norway, we can nod to each other when walking in the forest, but all the cheering and moral support we experienced was something to take with us back home!
We clocked in at a total of 9h45m and 18miles (28km).
