Bagged Half Dome again this past Saturday

* We woke at 4:05am
* Hit the trail (from Curry Village) at 4:55am
* Top of Vernal Falls at 7am
* Top of Half Dome at 10:10am
* 9.6 miles and ~5000' of elevation in 5.25 hours!
* We left the top at 11:00am
* Back to Curry Village at 3:30pm (blisters slowed us down)
* We came back down a quicker route ( 9.0) miles in 4.5 hours!
* 18.6 miles in 9.75 hours
* After an hour nap and then a shower (no line!), we had some dinner (no line!) and homemade sangria

Cammy...very happy!

Wow, I have yet to hike up to 1/2 dome one of these days. It's on my "to-do" list! Was it treacherous? Dang, 18.6 miles in 9.75 hours. How about bathroom breaks or was there no such thing? =)

Public restrooms exist at the top of Nevada Falls. Private restrooms (re: behind rocks and trees) exist all the way to the top!
