Driving from LV to Yosemite via DV ,Tiago pass open???

Hi,

I am leaving LV on the 4th of June through DV and up

to Yosemite over a couple of days.

Do you think the Tiago Pass will be open.

Thanks

Damien

Generally spoken Tioga Pass will be open in june but there were exceptions. Check before you go. Love that name "Crikey"!

The blades were off a lot of the snow plows last week. That's usally a sign that they are very close to getting the pass open.

We saw a bear in the Sentinal Beach picnic area. It didn't approach us, but we are very careful when picnicking. The waterfalls were gorgeous!

Normally, the roads in the valley are one way. They were doing work on the northside, so there was two way traffic on the southside road between Bridalveil Falls and Curry Village. Drive carefully!

Be sure to stop at the Whoa Nellie Deli before you start up the hill into Yosemite.

That opening date is just a rumour, nothing more. It could be later if problems arise (clearing falling trees, repairing the road etc).

Scheduled does not say it will be open but it has nothing to do with a rumour.

If they can they will try to open Tioga Pass before Memorial Day weekend which starts may 22. Maybe also check www.nps.gov/yose/planyourvisit/tioga.htm or wwww.myyosemite.com/tioga-pass-may-open-52209
