No, I haven’t hiked up this familiar Yosemite rock, but I did go on the smaller (but steep and strenuous towards the end) Mist Trail hike and made it past Vernal fall to the top of Nevada fall. The views on the way and from the top were beautiful, and later, I clicked this picture of Half Dome on my phone.
The best part? I wasn’t at my most physically fit then. 😉 The sense of accomplishment and victory that I felt then is one of the sources of (self-)inspiration for my exercising goals.
