Rick Deutsch, "Mr. Half Dome"; Author, One Best Hike: Yosemite's Half Dome; Motivational Speaker
While working in the IT industry, Deutsch developed a new passion: hiking to the top of an 8,842 foot granite rock. This rock, Half Dome, is the signature landmark of Yosemite National Park and one of the most recognized mountains on earth. The hike is a grueling 16-mile round trip with a vertical ascent of almost one mile from the valley floor. The hike requires stamina, training and determination, yet he has completed the hike an amazing 35 times. Using his Yosemite Half Dome hiking expertise as a metaphor for life (D.O.M.E. - Discover your passion; Overcome obstacles; be Motivated and Enthusiastic) Deutsch will help you find the passion to get to the top of your mountain.
