I don't understand why when we destroy something created by man we call it "vandalism",
but when we destroy something created by nature we call it "progress"

I was at Yosemite last June.  Half Dome is simply amazing!! We only did 4 nights on the JMT but it was an experience I will never forget.  The thru hike experience I want to hear about!  (By the way, we met once on a hike a few years back to Red Byrd Arch. I have been back to that special spot many times)

is that bear vault approved for the area you will be in? I took one of those Bearikade with me. Luckily I knew someone I could borrow from. They are expensive

Great question? I'm learning as I go. On all the boards I've been on everyone's taking about this ones bigger brother the BV500, but it's too big since in solo. I pulled the trigger on it today, it was only $52

My coworker's wife did that trail last year - I'm sure you're going to have an amazing experience!
