I finally reached that vista point the woman from earlier spoke of. She was absolutely right about it. The views were breathtaking. Words cannot begin to describe what I felt at that moment.
I was able to clearly see Clouds Rest, some waterfalls that I had never spotted before, and an impressive view of what appeared to be a heart carved into one of the rock formations in the distance. God was showing me that He loved me.
A new angle of a familiar object was also visible. I saw the Half Dome cables and the people ascending and descending them, like Jacob’s Ladder. They looked like little ants or a slow-moving caterpillar. Excitement began to well up in me, even though I felt like I was playing on my last string.
I saw little Katelyn and her family again. They were taking a break before heading up to Sub Dome. I stopped and chatted with them, and we took some pictures together. They were about to leave and head toward Sub Dome to begin the next climb, when Katelyn asked if I was going to join them. I told her that I didn’t think I could make it. I was seriously beat and couldn’t handle any more torture.
You only have a little bit more to go, then you’ll get to Sub Dome, then you’ve got just a little bit of steps up Sub Dome and you’ll reach Half Dome, and you just got a little way to go up some cables and then you’ll be there at the top.
