Each year, Yosemite National Park asks a couple of rangers to spend the winter in Tuolumne Meadows. They're there to keep an eye on things, perhaps help out a hiker/skier in distress, and report on the conditions in the Yosemite High Country.

And they are now back in place, reporting on what they see. Here's a link.
