Almost forty years have elapsed since I last regularly lived in Yosemite. I had forgotten about the beautiful, really truly amazing walk to North Dome. In January of 2012 the Tioga Road was still open! My wife and family made two visits to North Dome that month. Later in June that year, I took my daughter out once again. We knew that the moon would rise far to the south in the month of the summer equinox. We chose one night before the true full moon so that the moon would be above and to right of Half Dome at sunset. I do like this capture, but I may just have to make the trip again!
