Hiking Half Dome
If you want to hike Half Dome this summer, start making plans now. The cables that guide hikers the last 400 feet to the top of the Yosemite high point went up Friday, later than usual, thanks to late snows. They will remain until Oct. 10. Whenever you attempt to summit Half Dome this summer, you’ll need a permit. Go to www.lat.ms/ halfdomepermits for rules and requirements. To apply: (877) 4446777 or www.recreation.gov.
