I spent a night in Salt Lake City after leaving Jackson, and then made a picture stop on the Bonneville Salt Flats on the way to Lake Tahoe. My time at Lake Tahoe was short so that I could spend two nights in Yosemite. I intended to climb the Half Dome, but learned that permits are now required to hike the Cable Route. This is my third foiled attempt to ascend the Half Dome…sigh. Instead I hiked the 4 Mile Trail (9.2 miles round trip) to Glacier Point and enjoyed a beautiful view of the Yosemite Valley.
