Conquering Half Dome – Yosemite National Park

As spring is coming before us, I wanted to how I had the opportunity of conquering Half Dome at Yosemite National Park. I was able to check yet another item off my life bucket list… Conquering Half Dome at Yosemite National Park! What is even better? I got to do it with my fiance, my brother & his fiance!

It ain’t as fun when you do it alone. Half Dome is not for the light at heart. IMG_1179


Here are some quick facts:
It is a 14.2 miles (22.7 km) round trip via Mist Trail which is the trail we took.
Half Dome Elevation: 8,842 feet
Hiking Time: 10 – 14 hours

Why put yourself through such torture some may think?
Half Dome is the ultimate day hike you have to do before you die and you just may feel like its your last hours while doing it!

If you want to make it all the way up to Half Dome you’ll need a permit to access the cable section of the trail. This is what the cable part looks like

We went in June which is typically high season and found the trail fairly busy so plan ahead and get your permit.

Yosemite National Park has so much to offer! This was my second trip there and there is still so many things to do and yet to uncover!

Head over to for more information!
