I didn't take this photo, but it's a good shot of Half Dome from the valley floor.
Jenni at the top of Vernal Falls.
Jenni looking fabulous with her "mist trail" hair.
Christian stretching after the mist trail stairs.
Half Dome from the backside.
Switchbacks and cables looming up ahead.
Can you see the cables behind Christian? Good thing we got up their early. Practically no one on the cables.
We made it to the top! 3 hours and 50 minutes!
Jenni finishing the cables.
Half Dome drops off about 1 foot behind us.
Our Marmot friend.
Sneaky sneaky. This guy stole my cookies while I was off taking pictures.
What a view!
Being silly with Yosemite Valley behind us.
Jenni was crazier than I. I wouldn't get that close to the edge.
Huge ugly crown posing for my picture.
Don't feed the animals!
Marmot -- mid-bite.
Scared out of my mind.
Dangling my feet 4,737 feet over the valley floor.
Can you see the river winding through the valley?
Jenni is absolutely insane.
There's a teeny bit of plant life on this rock.
Tha face of Half Dome. There's a guy rock climbing up it, but he's so far away it's impossible to see him.
Napping at the top.
The cables are way busier later in the day.
That's Jenni outside the cables halfway up the picture.
Christian and Molly being dorks on the way back down the granite switchbacks.
On the way down the mountain.
