Permit lottery for Yosemite Half-Dome climb

FRESNO, Calif.

The 2013 hiking season hasn't started just yet but the demand is so high for these permits the park service uses a lottery system to distribute the passes.

You can apply for the lottery online for a small fee.

But don't worry if you don't win one of the permits an average of 50 permits are made available each day because of no-shows and cancellations.
