Yosemite is ajar--half open!

Yosemite National Park is now open again, at least parts of it, both for day trips and even some overnight stays. Here's a quick summary:



Roads Open: Big Oak Flat, El Portal, Badger Pass, Hetch-hetdchy.

Roads Closed: TIoga Pass, Wawona, and Mariposa Grove.


The only campground open is a small section of Upper Pines (two of the loop) by reservation only. There are no first-come, first served campsites at all.


It won't look like the photo above. That's El Capitan from the Valley floor in August...
