Fresh from the park:
Snow melt over the past week has been significant, however hazards still exist along the upper sections of the trail. The Half Dome Cables are not expected to be in place before June 22. Installation of the Half Dome cables is scheduled to begin Wednesday, June 22 and we anticipate the cables will be in place and ready for access to permit holders by late afternoon, conditions permitting. The cable route will be closed early on the morning of June 22 in order to allow trail crews to work unimpeded during the work day. Once the cables are in place and the trail crews have completed their work, the cables will be open for the public holding valid permits for that day.
In other BIG news, Tioga Road will open through the park at 8 am on June 18. Now don’t get too excited; Tuolumne is still covered in snow and no hiking trails are open. Nothing is open along the road, just the pavement. Nothingto buy. But you can get across Hwy 120 to the eastern burg of Lee Vining. Likewise, those folks can now get to the valley. Progress.
