The crew is still working on preparing Highway 120 through Yosemite for the summer season. Highway 120 has been plowed through to Tioga pass, with more road work needed before the road can be opened for the public. You can read the plowing update.
It looks like there will be terrific conditions for my June 9/10/11 photo tour, I’m really excited about getting there in early June while there is still some good snow cover, and lots of water. With 18 days left, conditions should be exhilarating in terms of pleasant conditions, snow cover and racing water, all commingled with the high country scenic vistas.
I had never actually seen how plowing is done up on Highway 120. Not a casual affair, avalanche danger is very real (sadly there was a death not too long ago). There is an interesting video online, apparently filmed in 2005, but same idea.
