Hi, we have booked flights to SF to spend a week early May, 2 days SF, 1 day Napa and 3/4 days Yosemite. But I just found out that the cable for the Half Dome hike will only be up on the 27th, so it's not possible to do that hike.
Question: Are there still other interesting, breathtaking (strenuous if possible) hikes for us to do? From what I've read, Half-Dome is the main attraction - I don't know if I am perhaps being too dramatic, but I am comparing going to Yosimite and not doing the Half Dome hike like going to Rome and only seeing the Colosseum from far and not going in. I am hoping to be swayed though as we really like our hikes and would love to go to Yosimite.
So, in summary - just want an opinion as to whether I should still go to Yosemite for a couple of days or find some other parks to go to and leabe Yosemite for some other time.
