The top of Half-Dome, at 8,836 feet, is high, but is not the highest point in the Park. A plane view of the summits visible from up there show us 10,000 peaks which were eroded down to these levels a long time ago by various aggressive glaciers.
Exalted by the feat of being at the top of Half-Dome, the four of us decide that tomorrow, we will go for the highest peak of all Yosemite National Park peaks: Mount Hoffman, straight out there at 10,850 feet.
Wish us luck: all we have to do now is hike six miles down to the Ahwahnee hotel, where we can shower, have dinner and a good sleep, in order to get ready for tomorrow’s newly set challenge.
