    Scored in the lottery and then had a conflict come up so returned those lottery permits back which gave us good karma as we then scored in the daily lottery for an alternate date. Super fun, super rewarding hike. Didn't even realize how many miles we hiked until we looked at our Apple Watches - time seemed to pass by quickly. The same advice as anyone: bring lots of water and snacks, stay on trail. wear proper shoes and sunscreen. I'm not going to lie, the cables were harder than I had thought. I had an awesome hiking partner that encouraged me to take breaks when needed even on the cables and to catch my breath and that was exactly what I needed. No need to rush - listen to your body especially on the cables. Take breaks and encourage others to do so as well. Everyone on the cables with us were great - we were all taking breaks and motivating each other. It's hard...there are a couple of steps up you have to do while on the cables and for me who is shorter, that was the hardest part of the whole hike...but like I said, breath and be smart and take your time and you will be fine. We started the hike just before 6am and parked right by the trailhead/falls. It was so amazing being in the park while still cool out and no one around. Hiking Vernal and Nevada Falls at that time was so peaceful and breathtaking. We didn't need any layers in July - just wore a tank top and shorts the whole way...no poles either. The switchbacks were fine - just like any other hiking switchbacks you encounter. The sub-dome was harder as you are exposed to the sun and tired, but super duper pretty. I took so many photos. Just make sure you eat and drink up before the sub dome but pee ahead of time as you don't wanna get to the top of Half Dome and have to pee - not going to work up there. Then the cables - you see them and you're like "HOLY SHIT" - put on your gloves, drink up, and just do it! It's incredible experience that only a handful of people get to do. Don't rush it...breathe, be smart and you will be fine. Encourage those around you - you guys are all so awesome and at that moment, you are doing something super cool. Go down backwards, high five everyone, look up and say "Hell yeah, we did it!" Then head down for some beers! We did the John Muir Trail down and clocked in around 20 miles total back to the car. I don't remember what time we finished but it was still sunny outside - felt like around Happy Hour time. Yay guys! Have fun! If you have any more questions, I am happy to help - find me at HikerWomen on Instagram. :)
