A group of six of us want to hike down to Yosemite Valley from Tuolomne, to finish the JMT and to hike Half Dome. We need permits for both, and were not able to get any until tomorrow, so today was a zero.

I mostly sat around the store and campground, but I did take the shuttle out to Olmsted Point for a view of Cloud’s Rest and Half Dome. Looks difficult! But fun!

There was a thunderstorm for an hour or two in late afternoon, and then a beautiful sunset after.
