Finally going to Yosemite
So, I posted a thread awhile back about what to do in Yosemite. Well, now it's nearly upon us--we're leaving Labor Day weekend. We are staying in the Curry Tent Village. Do you know anything about this? Any advice? Also, do you know how I get to the trailhead for the hike up Half Dome from the Curry area? Anything at all will help me out.

Well its a pretty small area so finding the trail head is a no brainer.
All I can say is I got up really early one Saturday morning and drove from the Bay Area to Yosemite.
I got there about 100 years too late.Please buy my book - "Paiute ATV Trail Guide" at www.atvutah.com - I need gas money!!!!

Curry Tent Village is nice, but is very noisy. I recommend earplug if you plan to turn in early. It usually quiets down after 10pm.
The valley is small. When you get there, just drive around a bit to get yourself oriented. When we did Half Dome last year, we did drive to the parking lot closest to the trailhead. At O-Dark Thirty in the morning, there is plenty of parking. Check out the back county office to plan your trip. We went up via the Mist Trail. It is a beautiful hike - I look forward to doing it again. I want to go with my kids.
Have a great trip and take lots of pictures. Be sure to catch a sunrise!

I will most definitely catch a sunrise. Do you have a recommended place to view one from?
