This was fun.. Includes info about the first person to climb half dome.. The woman who tried to build the first way up for others to follow. How the Yose park was formed by some of Conness' legislation (yes, one of my favorite mountains).. A LOT of non obvious info in the video including some of Whitney's comments about Yosemite valley formation.
