Sunset on Half Dome from Glacier Point, Yosemite

Sunset on Half Dome from Glacier Point on 3/22/08. It was not a very spectacular sunset but after skiing 11 miles it was very rewarding. Glacier Point is a very different place in the winter as you pretty much have the place to yourself.

Sunset on Half Dome, Yosemite
