Amazing Views!

I completed this hike in the summer of 2014 with my uncle. We started the from lake tenaya around 6:30 am. The initial part of the hike involves a fair bit of elevation gain of around 1000 feet. There were also a lot of mosquitos during this part but as you gain elevation they begin to disappear. The trail then flattens out for a bit and then another portion of elevation gain begins. The ascent to the summit gave me a bit of vertigo because of the shear drops of thousands of feet on each side but I felt safe the whole time. The summit itself has spectacular views of Yosemite as a whole. The descent down to Yosemite valley was also beautiful and you get great views of the back side of half dome. Numerous waterfalls are also on the way down as well. Overall we finished the hike around 4 pm.
