Yosemite National Park Reopens to Visitors
Yosemite National Park reopens to park visitors tonight, October 16, 2013. Visitors can access public areas and roads immediately while facilities and other public services are brought back on-line. Yosemite National Park has been closed since October 1, 2013 due to the government shutdown.
“We are excited to reopen and welcome visitors back to Yosemite,” stated park superintendent Don Neubacher. “Autumn is a particularly special season to enjoy Yosemite’s colorful grandeur.”
Major highways and roads leading into and through Yosemite National Park, including the Glacier Point and Mariposa Grove roads, are open to vehicles. Park visitor centers will reopen and Ranger-led programs will resume on October 17. Visitors are urged to consult the Yosemite Guide for a list of programs.
Valley campgrounds in Yosemite will reopen on October 17. Those with reservations will be able to check in by noon. First come, first serve sites at Camp Four, Wawona and Hodgdon are also available.
Delaware North Parks & Resorts at Yosemite, Inc., the park’s primary concessioner, is reopening facilities and will begin to welcome guests immediately.
The Ansel Adams Gallery, located in Yosemite Village, will also reopen.

シャットダウン

10月1日から全米の国立公園・国立史跡等の国立公園局管理箇所がクローズされました。
これは連邦議会におけるオバマ大統領のヘルスケア法に関する長期間にわたる論争によって、暫定予算法案の成立が遅らせられたことによります。
これによって、一部の政府機関の職員が出勤停止になり、一時閉鎖になっています。
クローズはもちろんヨセミテ国立公園も例外ではありません。
また、国立公園局のWEBサイトもクローズしています。

いつまで続くかは不明です。
一刻も早い再開を望みます。

CA 120 (Tioga Rd), CA 108 雪のため閉鎖

今日ベイエリアには雨がかなり降りました。前線はセントラルバレーを越えてシエラの山に移動、現在Tioga Rdは雪のためクローズしています(一時的ですが)。 Rim Fireの沈静化にはかなり貢献しそうです。Web CamではValleyは雨。
