This three day backpacking trip starts in Tuolumne Meadows and ends in Yosemite Valley, visiting Cloud’s Rest and Half Dome along the way!

We spend the first night near the impressive Sunrise Lakes. The next day we cross over Cloud’s Rest, looking out and down upon Half Dome and the Valley. From here we head down and camp directly below Half Dome, setting us up to climb early the next day with the hopes of being in front of those coming up from the Valley. This gives us some quiet time on the summit to soak up the view and scenery. After our morning on the summit, we head down for the Valley, where we catch a shuttle back to Tuolumne Meadows.
