Weekend Postcard from Yosemite-Atop Half Dome

Last weekend I posted a Postcard from Yosemite showing the cables that you use to get to the top of Half Dome. Lexi commented that the view might be rather terrifying. I suppose if one stands on the very edge it could be. The first time I went up I stood maybe 30 feet from the cliff’s edge and noticed a hand pop up over the side, then a foot, then a leg, and finally the climber who had just climbed the face of Half Dome.

I think this is looking north.
