California is parched and you don’t need to look beyond Yosemite to notice the effects.
In March, Glacier Point Road opened. It was the first time the road has been opened before May in 20 years. Why? Because there’s no snow.
That’s the same reason Half Dome is opening three weeks early to “hikers.” Often, the peak’s north-facing summit trail has snow until mid-May, but not this year.
Watch this complete ascent of the Half Dome cables. The narration is priceless.
