    The Half Dome cables will be ready for use on June 16, 2010, conditions permitting. The cable route will be closed during installation on June 15. Snow remains on the subdome, below the Half Dome cables. A slip and fall from the subdome’s steep snowfield could cause serious injury or death.
    (Learn more about the Half Dome hike. Please note that permits are required to hike to Half Dome on Fridays-Sundays and holidays beginning this year.)

    The Half Dome cables will not be in place over the May 28-31 permit period. Cool, wet conditions have persisted well into May, resulting in a heavier-than-usual and slowly-melting snowpack. As a result, the subdome, below the Half Dome cables, is covered in snow. A slip and fall from the subdome’s steep snowfield could cause serious injury or death. For the safety of employees setting up the cables and hikers, the cables will not be put up until conditions improve. We will monitor conditions over the next two weeks and issue an expected opening date as soon as possible. If you have a permit for May 21-23 or May 28-31, you will receive a refund.

    HDケーブルは月末まではUPしないようです。
    # The Half Dome cables will not be in place over the May 21-23 permit period. Snowpack in the Yosemite high country is currently well above average (134% in the Merced River basin), with the potential for additional cool, wet weather in the next week. As a result, the Half Dome cable route and subdome are covered in deep snow, making trail conditions poor. For the safety of National Park Service employees setting up the cables and for hikers, the cables will not be put up until conditions improve. We will monitor conditions over the next two weeks and issue an expected opening date as soon as possible. If you have a permit for May 21-23, you will receive a refund for the reservation fee.

    # The Mist Trail from near Vernal Fall Footbridge to the top of Vernal Fall (and to Nevada Fall) is open. The John Muir Trail between Clark Point and the Panorama Trail (near the top of Nevada Fall) is closed for the season.
    # The Four Mile Trail to Glacier Point is closed for the season at Union Point (no access to Glacier Point).
    # The southern portion of the Mirror Lake Loop is closed due to a rock fall. (Access to Mirror Lake and Snow Creek Trail is still available, as usual.) Learn more about the rockfall.
    # The trail to Wapama Falls is closed to stock (but is open to hikers) beyond the Beehive junction due to a rock fall.

    Valley西側、スーノーハイキング。

    P1はBadger Pass Ski Areaの駐車場。ここから歩き始めます。
    1マイルほどGlacier Point Rdを進んだあたりで(P2)左折し、雪原に入ります。新雪の直後で無い限り、まずトレイルが出来上がっています。3マイルほど歩けばDewey Pointに到着(ルートはかなり大まかです)。
    Dewey Pointへは#14と#18の二つのルートがあります。上記は#18で、Up-Downが少なく初心者向き。
    #14への分岐はP1からの緩やかな坂を上りきったところにあります。
    P4はCrocker Point。Dewey Pt.の直前で分岐、10分ほど下れば到着(トレイルが出来ていれば)。 
    P5: Inspiration Point。Tunnel Viewの山側の駐車場にTHがありそこから1.5マイル弱。
    周りは木々に囲まれ、大展望はありません。期待していくとがっかりしますのでご注意。
    P6: おそらく誰もが一度は車で行くTunnel View (Discovery View)。一番有名な観光スポットの一つ。

    Dewey Pointから見るValley。

    Crocker Pt.から見るValley。Dewey Pt.に比べヨセミテ南東方面の遠望にかけますが、真下にBridalveil Fallを見下ろせ、水量の多いときには展望を楽しめそうな感じ。
