This photo of Half Dome with the sunset light streaming over Yosemite Valley was taken from the summit of Clouds Rest. The pointed rock in the distant right part of the frame where the sunset can be seen over Yosemite Valley is El Capitan, nearly 10 miles to the west. It's a seven mile hike from Tioga Pass Road up to the summit of Clouds Rest, which stands nearly 1,000 feet higher than the top of Half Dome. On this particular trip I wasn't backpacking or camping, so shooting the sunset from the top of Clouds Rest meant I had to hike down in the dark. With at least one instance of losing the trail in the dark, it was nearly midnight before I finally got back to my truck.
