This was a very leisurely and relaxing two night trip from Tenaya Lake (Sunrise TH) to Happy Isles. We camped a mile below Clouds Rest the first night after getting started in mid-afternoon. I did an evening summit of Clouds Rest while the others stayed in camp. The next morning we all summited Clouds Rest together, which is perhaps the most scenic spot in the entirety of Yosemite National Park. From there we descended to Sunrise Creek, taking an off-trail route that brought us out to the spectacular views of Quarter Domes.

That night we camped near the creek, and got up to summit Half Dome at night under the full moon (separate triplog). Friday morning after a short nap, we made the final descent into the valley, enjoying the constant flow of the Merced River, but irritated by the crowds of people.

Pizza and showers in Curry Village followed by a bear-filled night at the backpackers camp in the valley completed this trip before we headed out on another Saturday morning.
