The Park is conducting the last on-line Webinar on theMRP workbook this Wednesday from 6:30-8:30 pm. You should attend after your busy day at the factory. It’s at 6:30 so you can’t claim access problems at work. These workshops are very good in communicating exactly what the park may look like for decades to come. 5 Alternatives. You comment – they implement. Register at yose.webex.com. Your final in-person shot is April 12 at the El Portal Community Hall; 5:30-8 p.m. or April 13 1-3:30 p.m. in the Wawona Community Hall. Last call for comments is April 20 – a week from now.
5 interns have just finished fifteen-weeks in Yosemite busily digitizing the vast collection of archival photos. More as I probe around. FYI – Some of the Archives are kept upstairs of the Museum in the Valley (I got my olde tyme pix from there). But most are held in a controlled environment down in El Portal at the NPS Warehouse. I’ll blog about that soon.
Check your bank credit card statement. Like a few others, I have been charged $20 by recreation.gov. This is a good sign…4 permits. But their website does not reflect that I have permits. Funny, they are quick to extract the dough, but tardy in sending the emails out to winners.
Snow will begin Tuesday night and change to snow showers Wednesday. More on Thursday. We had spring in January and winter in April. Go figure. I hope the snow stays above 5,000 feet as predicted. I’ll be there Thursday for the Gateway Partners meeting. I’ll sneak by Yosemite Falls to see if the snow cone is there and if any frazil ice is creeping about.
