I’m driving up Wed at attend the Yosemite Gateway Partners meeting at the park. It’s Jan 9. I’m glad there is no snow as I hate chains. It’s a quarterly session that goes from 9 – 2. Anybody of rank at the park is there. Updates on projects and news are presented. The plans for the big anniversaries are briefed. The Emergency Services presentation is my favorite.
The audience numbers over 200 and includes the gateway towns of Groveland, Coulterville, Lee Vining, Mariposa, merced, Fresno, Oakhurst and others. ..usually tourist agencies, Visitor Centers and Chambers of Commerce.
The October meeting was cancelled due to the rim fire, so we have 6 months of catching up. We will be shown the new short Ken Burns film on Yosemite. I’ll take good notes and highlight the salient points on this blog. I’ll ferret out any news about Half Dome.
If you have any topics you want me to bring up – please leave a comment. You know what a comment is? I rarely get any. We’ve had almost 300 people a day read this blog…and close to nil comments. I know you are out there. The NSA and I can even see you. Put tape over you camera!
