The story behind "Half Dome in Yosemite Valley in winter"

A great place to enter the new year. Half Dome in Yosemite park is a wonderful place, standing proud above the snowy valley. In summer it is relatively easy to hike up, that is: if you use the hiking trail going around and not the extreme routes on the face!

The evening before we were pitching our tent in the snow in the famous Camp 4, when a dark shape passed between me and the parking area nearby. A black bear walked, just 30 feet away, ignored us and continued his evening walk.

So close to San Francisco, there is still a lot of nature to be found and to be protected…
