    If your going in the winter make sure you check on the conditions- http://www.nps.gov/yose/planyourvisit/conditions.htm
    Many roads in Yosemite close in the winter months due to heavy snowfall. It will be harder to find a guide that time of year, your best bet would be to contact the park service and see who is still available. Yosemite is beautiful and completely worth the trip though, even in the winter months.

    It's a still a stain on the back of my memory. Repression helps though.

    2500 feet fall? Goddam. That'd actually give one a decent length of time to ponder one's impending doom.

    When I was there, we were on some ridiculously high lookout atop one of those precipices with 2000+ ft drops and there was a guy standing out on a very narrow rock jutting out over the damn thing posing for pics. Pretty much asking for a strong gust of wind to carry him to his death. Didn't happen though.

    Slightly related: my brother in law and a bunch of other nerds were diving off some waterfall here in TN. One of them died. The bro-in-law happened to snap a picture of him as he was leaping to his death. Kinda creepy.

    It'd be even creepier if he masturbates to the pic.
