People the world over travel to Yosemite National Park to stand before Half Dome. And a lucky few manage to climb to the top of this iconic loaf of rock.

Take a few minutes to watch this short National Park Service videocast and you'll not only learn a bit about Half Dome, but you'll see it in a variety of seasons and discover something about the "magic" that pulls folks up to its summit.
