Just got a notice that the Park has officially stated it plans to open 120 by May 11th. Maybe old news but welcome I'm sure.

It's in the paper, so it must be true.

Thundershowers here all week....it actually snowed up on the Pass the last two days, but nothing much to speak of accumulated on the road.

It's going to be an amazing opener....with the week of moisture, Tuolumne is going to smell like heaven!

I wouldn't be surprised if the park gets bitten in the ass by announcing the opening weeks in advance. The weather looks a little uncertain this week and could put a damper on th party.

Heard from a friend in Lee Vining it was spitting some snow this morning, low clouds and fog. Anyone else hear how the pass fared today?

Climbed the Dana couloir on Saturday. Got a nice view. But seems like they closed the road to the gates again.

Lynne, the Pass got dusted with snow yesterday...so pretty!

More of the same today and tomorrow....nothing that will effect the timing of the opening on Saturday....and with all the moisture up here, everything smells GLORIOUS!

See you soon!

[edit:] OK, cool, the 1888 also looks about the same (when it was pretty new):

I'm pretty sure that penny I found was dated around 1888 or so. Pretty sure it fell out of a hole in John Muir's pocket. Don't know what happened to it but that arrowhead that TMJesse found was almost like a spear point.

It was a grayish-green and big arrowhead made of chert; probably 3-1/2 or 4 inches long. I turned it in because it was obviously going to be found (near the parking lot). The NPS archaeologist said it was a minimum of 600-years old, predating most everything of what's normally found around there.
