Rick Deutsch: "Half Dome in a Day: Tips for a Successful Hike"

When: Tue., Aug. 16, 7-8:30 p.m. 2011

Yosemite National Park is one of our country's most beautiful locales, but it can also be deadly. As of late last week, fifteen people had died inside the park this year alone: swept down rushing rivers and over waterfalls, falling off trails, and, in one case, slipping off Half Dome. If you're thinking about making the trek to Yosemite, safety should be your number one precaution. Hiker and outdoor author Rick Deutsch will share slides and discuss the logistics of hiking Half Dome on Tuesday, Aug. 16, at REI (1338 San Pablo Ave., Berkeley). 7-8:30 p.m., free. Register at
