Yosemite Half Dome Itinerary (3 Days)

This itinerary covered our trip to Yosemite National Park, where we targeted the summiting of the iconic Half Dome. The trip planning started from the moment I had made camping reservations 24 weeks in advance while the physical and mental preparation took place over several hikes and several trips over this span of time. This was probably the largest outdoor gathering amongst friends that I had ever organized as we occupied two campsites and wound up with a party of seven (including ourselves) with a few last-minute cancellations. And as you can see from the itinerary below, even though we were focused on accomplishing our goal of completing the difficult Half Dome hike, we also managed to accomplish quite a bit of other sightseeing as well...
