A moderate hike (approximately 2.5 miles from the Carson Pass trailhead) brings you to scenic Lake Winnemucca. We saw many families, dogs, and recreational fishermen on the day we hiked to the lake.

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
