Half Dome is a granite dome at the eastern end of Yosemite Valley in Yosemite National Park, California. It is a well-known rock formation in the park, named for its distinct shape. One side is a sheer face while the other three sides are smooth and round, making it appear like a dome cut in half. The granite crest rises nearly 5,000 feet above the valley floor, and 8,800 feet above sea level. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
