Cool Tioga Pass and Glacier Point Open Today

Usually Yosemite National Park officials make every effort to clear the heavy snowpack on the Glacier Point road before Memorial Day. Often the facilities at Glacier Point are not fully operational until sometime in June. On the other hand, it has been numerous seasons since the Tioga Pass Road (CA 120) was open connecting the Western and Eastern slopes of the Sierras prior to June 1st. Due to the lighter snowpack this year both road are officially opening at 1200 noon today for the summer season! These photos were taken yesterday during a preview access for members of the Yosemite Association. It's still a bit brisk but the views are spectacular while the runoff has most waterfalls at maximum flow down in the valley. Could be time to make your plans to visit the park or perhaps consider the group ride planned for June 1-3.
