My brother, Philip Garofalo, and I enjoyed a number of hiking adventures in Yosemite Naional Park, California, in August, 2006.
One challenging hike was a 10 mile round trip hike from Tioga Road to the top of North Dome. Here are some photos of North Dome from the Valley, from the trail, and from the top of North Dome, 7,542 feet.
