Patriarch Grove Road Still Blocked by Snow

Please bookmark my camera and computer wish lists for shopping at B&H and/or, so I get credit.

An FYI for anyone planning on visiting the Patriarch Grove in the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest: shortly after the turnoff onto the ~1 mile road to the heart of Patriarch Grove, a snow drift still blocks the road, as shown below.

Parked in the lot here where this picture was taken, I once saw a visitor just drive around a similar blockage for quite a long way. I took several photographs as he drove by over the meadow, with clear license plate number, sent it all to the Forest Service, which did nothing about it AFAIK.

It’s no problem to visit the grove—the rest of it is snow free—just walk in and walk around. All sorts of interesting stuff abounds that does not require even going down this road. My general policy is this anyway: if it’s official, I don’t like to go there!
