  9. Sticky: Poll: Yeah that's bad luck.

  15. Sticky: Poll: A hint of snow. Glacier point to remain closed through 2022.

    There is a little snow forecast for the second half of the week but it doesn't look as though it will amount to much. We should see the plows starting to work on the pass next week and some reports...
