    Well, once you've seen one cliched landmark with the cliched ironic cars in the forground, you've seen them all.

    Got that right.

    Speaking of cliches, how about the self conscious and uncomfortable looking naked girlfriend pics that sprout like weeds all over the net?

    Hmmm. Looks like the only thing you left out would be

    All that you touch
    All that you see
    All that you taste
    All you feel.
    All that you love
    All that you hate
    All you distrust
    All you save.
    All that you give
    All that you deal
    All that you buy,
    beg, borrow or steal.
    All you create
    All you destroy
    All that you do
    All that you say.
    All that you eat
    And everyone you meet
    All that you slight
    And everyone you fight.
    All that is now
    All that is gone
    All that's to come

    Tourists can walk the ladders up Half Dome. Only Climbers can make it up ElCap.

    Actually, the back of El Cap is a flat plateau that is accessible from the Tioga Pass road without much elevation difference.
