Among all the doom and gloom about the lack of rain and the dry forests, Yosemite National Park
announced that the Glacier Point Road is now open for cars. That gives hikers access to a couple of great trailheads: Glacier Point itself, along with Mono Meadows, has great access to Illilouette Canyon, Ottoway Lakes, Red Peak Pass, Merced Lake Pass...
And Bridalveil Creek Campground can lead you to Ostrander Lake, Chain Lakes, and the Buena Vista Crest.
Those are all great destinations, and we can hardly wait to get hiking.
You may recognize Half Dome here...a photo taken from Glacier Point a few years ago.
