Change in plans. They're going to try to have the lower gate open on Friday.

I think I heard they've plowed the entire road and are now doing cleanup/avy control. YNP will make no estimate on opening date, but I'll go with July 1. I really wanna do Dana Couloir in early July, so I hope it opens soon...

The LA Times published a good article today about the effort to open ("Blasting winter away at Yosemite") the road...looks like another week and it should be open:

I was told by NPS personnel today that 120 over Tioga will open for the season on Friday June 17. I don't know if it is all the way through, but at least to Tuolumne from the east side. Can hardly wait, I'll be up there for sure.

Not sure if I understand all the HUB-BUB of a pass being opened, but it's pretty ironic it opened on my damned BIRTHDAY ..

It connects the Sf Bay Area to to the Eastern Sierra. It's the main route to climbing the Eastern Sierra.
