If you come into the park via Hwy 140 thru Mariposa, you may want to know that the Shell gas station just outside the park has been closed for a while. Wanna know why? There have been negotiations going on to decide who will run it before the pumps are active again. In the meantime you can see the work that is being done on the holding tanks. So first one to report that the pumps are up and running wins a Cupie Doll.
Snows are cleared off 4-Mile trail. It’s open for hiking.
Unrelated thought worth quoting: “To my surprise, one hundred stories high. People getting loose. They’re getting down on the roof. Folks are screaming out of control, it was so entertaining, when that boogie-woogie started to explode. I heard somebody say: Burn, baby, burn! Disco Inferno, burn that mother down.” – The Bee Gees
