If you’re interested in hiking Half Dome in Yosemite National Park, here is a bit of news you might want to know.
A report from The Associated Press says you can start applying for permits now. Up to 300 hikers per day are allowed on the cables leading to the top of Half Dome. But you need reservations.
Restrictions on numbers began in 2011, with the National Park Service citing safety as the main reason for the new rule.
The lottery system will end March 31, the AP reported, but 50 additional permits per day will be issued through the hiking season.
