Gone to See America October 2008 Road Trip. Eighth Annual Nikonian Photography Adventure Trip. Day 5: Yosemite National Park.

Half Dome early morning from Olmsted Point. After spending the night at a run down motel in Lee Vining we were given the OK to return to Yosemite Valley and rejoin the Nikonian group after the 2nd rock slide at Curry Village. We stopped at Olmsted point to view Half Dome from a different perspective. Olmsted point is on highway 120 (Tioga Pass Road). Half Dome is about 5 miles away, but over 30 miles on the highway.
