Yosemite Info on HwY 140

Took a day trip to Yosemite Valley yesterday and would like to post that Hwy 140 from Merced into the valley is open and accessible for vehicles up to 45'. If you go that way with a toad you can un hook prior to the restricted area in a pull out for turn arounds and is clearly signed. There is construction and possible 15-20 minute delays at the Junction of 140 and 120. Valley is beautiful...falls are full, valley is green and river is flowing rapidly. KOA in Mid Pines is open as is Indian Flat RV Park near El Portal. Camp grounds in the valley were full (as usual).

Ronnie thanks for the report. I knew it would be a beautiful year there in Yosemite. There must be a dozen little falls in the valley this year. Oh to travel back and visit Tuolumne Meadows in July.

Wishon Village where we stayed during the summer by Shaver had over 40 feet of snow this year at 7K feet. I believe it was a record year.

We live out in our old van. Travel all across this land. Drive until the city lights dissolve into a country sky, me and you - hand in hand.

My middle son is working at the Ahwanhee Hotel in Yosemite as a chef so he has been giving me reports that the waterfalls are awesome. But it is still snowing...

Also be careful near the rivers as they are really moving. Yosemite had its first fatality last week when a poor soul slipped off the Mist Trail into the Merced River and drowned.

If you have ever hiked the Mist Trail, you would wonder how in our country, where many are litigious, that it is still open. It is a great hike and I hope they never have to close it ( my short cut to half dome). The rock stair steps can be slick when wet . Good traction is a must.

I can imagine the water flow is tremendous this year.

Someone please post some pics.
