Yosemite Videos

Here’s one from the good folks over at National Parks Traveler, one of my favorite sites. They find some really good googies over at YouTube featuring the crazy sh*t people do at Yosemite. To wit: there are videos of people hang gliding over the valley, a gnarly, stomach-clenching 3000 foot slackline walk (like a tightrope, but, well, somehow different…or maybe it’s just because the guy here has a heavy-accent it just sounds foreign), and a line of people making the hike up Half Dome. As they point out here, what’s scary is not the vertigo-inducing height of Half Dome, or the fact that some of this was shot during a helicopter rescue attempt (about which you see very little), but rather the absurd line of people venturing up the dome. Double yuck.
