That's good news.
You sure posted that early. :)

Thanks for your insider info Mark. Since I will be passing through on SR120 more often these retired days, will make a point of stopping by at the store this summer. Just spent 5 days working Mono Lake Basin and will return soon when the stormy weather fades.

Yosemite NP:
Tioga Road (continuation of Highway 120 through the park) will open on Monday, May 21, at 9 am! With stormy weather in the forecast, short-term road closures may be possible. Drive cautiously, watching for water, debris, and wildlife along the road. Call 209/372-0200 (then 1,1) to check current road conditions.

No services or campgrounds are yet available along the road, however, the wilderness center will open on Monday, and will also serve as a temporary visitor center.

Many of the hiking trails at higher elevations remain wet and/or snowy: please remain on trails, even if they have standing water, in order to avoid creating new trails.

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.
