    Default The hump has retreated. (for now)

    Having looked at the Sentinel webcam image a few days ago only to see a white out, I was quite surprised by todays image that shows 'the hump' on the bottom right of the image has reduced.



    This could prove to be another strange year as far as the opening goes, as in if the Tioga pass is officially opened, but the park is still closed due to the Coronavirus. As always I think it's right we should go with the first official announcement.

    Dave.

    Default Strange year seems to be the common thread.

    Strange year seems to be the common thread. Have you seen evidence that Caltrans has started work on the road yet?

    How are things with you WRT COVID-19 and your business? Crews still going out to sea?

    From the NPS Yosemite website:

    Tioga Road
    Tioga Road opened to traffic during limited hours on June 21 and to unrestricted travel on July 1, 2019.

    Opening operations for 2020 will begin on or about April 15, 2020. Updates will appear here shortly thereafter.

    Glacier Point Road
    Glacier Point Road opened for the season to vehicles on May 10, 2019.

    Opening operations for 2020 will begin on or about April 15, 2020. Updates will appear here shortly thereafter.

    Glacier Point Road will be closed to all traffic in 2021 to rehabilitate and improve the road. The only access to Glacier Point will be via the Four Mile, Panorama, and Pohono Trails, all of which are strenuous hikes.

    Wow ! For us Glacier point was one of the highlights of the park. Still well worth visiting Yosemite but this wil be a big miss for those that haven't been before.
