    Default Footprints? Maybe?

    Are those footprints in the foreground?

    Default A possible visitor!

    Could quite possibly be footprints, if it was mother nature you wouldn't expect the rest of the surrounding snow to be so smooth. Perhaps a bear was enjoying the view or possibly the Maintenance man popped up there to change the camera batteries! ;-)

    Hopefully resident bears are still hibernating in late January.

    It is curious in any case.

    Default This is looking like human interaction to me.

    This is looking like human interaction to me.

    That looks like a skidoo track pushing snow out to the edge!

    I have been watching the Web cam posting -- someone keeps pushing out a load of snow on a snocat or skidoo or something -- pile is much taller now.

    Here is a close-up of that pile -- see the tracks to the right?

    And the atmospheric river (storm) is starting to hit the Yosemite area -- starting to snow now -- will get very heavy snow showers in the next 2-3 hours.

    Default Winter storm warning in place!

    There looks to be a significant amount of snow about to settle on the ground from now, through the weekend and into Monday! Enough to cover those tracks and perhaps even form the 'Hump' to the shape we are more accustomed to seeing!

    Default The view right now.

    Murky start to the day with plenty more snow due. Possibly 5 to 6 feet of accumulation over 8000 feet!
