Rescue crews on Monday are still searching for a 19-year-old who was swept into a waterfall at Yosemite National Park while swimming in the Merced River.
The hike up the granite monolith Half Dome in Yosemite National Park is one of the most iconic in the nationwide system, but officials have announced approval of a plan that permanently limits how many can do it.
Ms. Cobb said Mr. Kalman had been visiting the park with a church group.
"With a place like Yosemite that is so dear and important to millions of people, everyone has ideas about what wilderness protection is. We tried to find a balance that allows people to still experience Yosemite while protecting Yosemite," spokeswoman Kari Cobb said.
