Clark Nexsen Inspectors Tackle Half Dome
September 17, 2008

Clark Nexsen, an architectural, engineering, planning, and interior design firm reached new heights last month when they sent six Clark Nexsen Bridge Inspectors to Yosemite National Park for a week to inspect 30+ bridges under a Federal Highway Association (FHWA) contract. On their last day in Yosemite they climbed the 16 mile roundtrip hike up Half Dome Mountain so they could express their company spirit and appreciation to Clark Nexsen by flying the Clark Nexsen banner at the top the mountain.

The hike up Half Dome was a 10 hour venture 5,000 feet above Yosemite Valley and 8,800 above sea level but they were determined to get to the top.  They did this climb with several wildfires amongst them as well as extreme fatigue from their long 12 hour days of inspecting several bridges.

The FWHA contract sends Clark Nexsen’s bridge inspectors to several national parks throughout the country to inspect bridges. Recent trips have been to Natchez Trace in Mississippi, the Great Smokey Mountains in Tennessee, and they will be in Yellowstone in Wyoming in September.
