    Default Not much happening right now.

    A little snow falls on the highground today, but apparently it's not going to amount to much. Otherwise it's all pretty quiet with no further updates from Yosemite regarding plowing, or opening for that matter.

    If you have to have a reservation to drive Tioga Road, is it more open or less open than it was in late June 2019 when it was only open two hours a day? Or is open a yes or no? It sounds like reservation required could be what happens this June, but not yet sure what date. See https://www.mercurynews.com/2020/05/...e-with-limits/

    In case my local paper is behind a paywall for you, the article opens with the following two paragraphs: Yosemite National Park may finally reopen as early as June, but with major changes: Visitors who want to spend the day at the famed Sierra Nevada destination would need a reservation and crowds would be limited to roughly half of normal.

    Aimed at reducing the risk of spreading the coronavirus, the plan drafted by Yosemite park officials has not been made widely public and still needs approval from the Trump Administrationís Department of the Interior.

    Default It either is or it isn't.

    As with most things during this Pandemic it's a case of seeing how things unfold. The article is more about the park as a whole but the straight answer is either "yes it's open" or "No it isn't". 'Yes' coincides with Yosemite nps when they reveal the pass is officially open to private vehicles (visitors that do not work or live in the park) whether that be one car a day allowed to cross , or an unlimited number. Anything that veers from that criteria and throws a curveball will have to be dealt with as and when appropriate.
