Watch: Would you try this hike in Yosemite?

hike in yosemite along Thank God Ledge

If you’re looking to hike in Yosemite, ‘Thank God Ledge’ should be right at the top of your list.

A 12m long sliver of granite located at Half Dome, Yosemite National Park, ‘Thank God Ledge’ is over 600m up in the sky and boasts spectacular views.

But how did it get its name, I hear you ask? Legend has it that hikers used to say ‘oh thank god, there is a ledge’.  This is because – ironically – it actually provides much needed rest-bite from the tough terrain.

Take your very own walk along ‘Thank God Ledge’ in the video below.
