Rocky (4377) is adopted. Rocky, a 3 year old tweenie, came into rescue a month ago after his previous owner was hospitalized and not expected to recover.

After several false starts, we were able to find just the right home for him. Rocky is an "alpha" male and really didn't want to share his humans with another dog, and definitely not one who was not a dachshund. So with that in mind, we matched Rocky with Sherry.

Rocky greeted his new mom with wagging tail and lots of kisses. Sherry was thrilled that he liked her immediately. Rocky occupied Sherry lap the entire meeting and happily jumped into her car for the ride home (with a brief stop at Petco to pick up some food).

Please join us in wishing Rocky and Sherry a long and happy life together. Congratulations Rocky, you got the home you really wanted. (No other people or other dogs.) ...

Yosemite could do a MUCH better job with recycling and make fewer one use utensils and straws available. I was pretty disappointed.

Are those plants then reintroduced to the natural settings?

That is GREAT! I worked on hotel desks and sang in the bars in 1975.

thats amazing

We know it's hard to find a place to park on busy days, but please park in designated parking areas and turnouts. Doing so protects sensitive areas, allows traffic to flow unobstructed, and helps you avoid fines and/or towing bills. The best way to find parking is to arrive early—by midmorning. ...

Did they all get tickets? Unfortunately it is time for the National Park Service and state parks to start raising fees. I would rather pay $80 a pop and find reasonable numbers of people in the parks. If the price doubles and half the people stop coming, the parks still make what they are today. I highly doubt national parks would lose that many people so not only would it cut down on numbers, but the parks would be making more money. Yeah it would suck for people like me, but that is where budgeting comes in handy. People learn how to budget and they can afford elite costs. It took my little family over a year to save up for Yellowstone. Everything possible went wrong with the trip, but it will be a forever memory that we laugh at less than a year later. Raise the costs of the parks to balance the supply and demand. It will help "preserves unimpaired the natural and cultural resources and values of the National Park System for the enjoyment, education, and inspiration of this and future generations." I just hope one day we can make it out there in March one year.

They need to not let so many people in the park at once! I've been there when it was busy and there was no way we could even get out of our car. The traffic was so bad it was like being in LA. It just ruins it for everyone there for it to be that crowded.

When we go to European attractions, they always charge non residents more! And, rangers need to give big fat tickets to those who break parking rules, and trespass in protected areas.

We camp in the valley at least twice a year. We had reservations to go up to Yosemite for a week in May of last year. We entered the park on a Sunday morning. The traffic was so bad, it took us “2 hours” to get from the tunnel view to Upper Pines (I’m not exaggerating). Ridiculous!!! All the way down, there were signs saying “no parking available in the valley”. Yet the cars were still pouring in. They definitely need to restrict the numbers entering the park.

We tried to get to Glacier Point yesterday and there was alot of traffic backed up the switchbacks waiting to get a parking space. We turned around and went back to the other overlook. There was also alot of cars parked along the road between the Sentinal Dome and Mono Meadows trailheads. I would like to see the NPS extend shuttlebus service to Glacier point as an alt transport. It would also be useful for hikers going up or down "4 mile" and "Panorama" trails. as well as the former mentioned.

I have to say...what the hell has happened up there? I lived in Merced about 10 years ago. I would drive up once a week just to enjoy. Parking was never an issue.

Sounds like maybe the park should only allow a certain number of vehicles in and that's it. Maybe time to start selling advanced passes.

The Park Service is decades in remiss for addressing the increasing visitation and demand on the park.

I know that just this year additional parking was created in the Merced plan, but it is far too little. A greater scale of shuttles and outside the park facilities need to be created.

Penalizing visitors that are allowed to enter the park for the simple reason of not being able to find adequate parking to get out of their cars, is simply wrong. Bordering on negligent administrative behavior.

Solve the problem, not the symptoms, please.

I have been coming to the park regularly for 30 years. This was a problem on my first visit 30 years ago, and now is a crisis.

Time to build a parking structure outside the valley! Either that or raise entry fees on overseas tourists that will visit anyways, in order to fund projects to protect Yosemite's nature.

Expand the towing departments in the park and tow them all, fine them for the towing and destruction of protected wilderness.

Yosemite is a treasure, but needs to improve it's approach to the National Parks. Such as Mt. Rushmore and Yellowstone. It's time to develop a parking garage system in non-sensitive areas. An improved transportation system beyond the park to see the Park in a Natural setting. A combination or improved parking and transportation throughout the park...The plan to develop this has not been seen to it's completion.

It's called respect, people. Follow the rules or stay home. Oh, and NO ONE cares to see your carvings all over everything. I don't care if YOU and your bf/gf/bff were there or who you 🖤. Knock it off.

The park has been beautiful this week and not super overcrowded, plenty of parking in the valley, but Glacier Point is ridiculous. You shouldn't let people drive up there. Allow shuttles only. We waited over an hour to park, there was no way to turn around and hundreds of car engines are spewing pollution while they wait! RVs taking up spots, a Yosemite bus having trouble making turns. It was an absolute nightmare. Yoy have got to do something about this issue.

I just came back from my first visit to Yosemite and found the park shuttle buses to be a Godsend. I left the rental at Half Dome Village and hopped on the bus. No worries about traffic congestion, no headaches in finding a parking space at the points of interest and no trying to find my way around the park. If the park service had bus service up to Glacier Point, I wouldnt have driven at all.

A fee increase that much will not happen . Zinke already backed off due to overwhelming public pressure. It was too high an increase. So that argument for it is now moot. Many forget or dont know that increases per each park's choice have since been made after the initial proposal So they are getting slightly more $$ now While some here can argue for a huge increase you see what the general outdoors living public does not want. I'm not gonna go back n forth here . It does nothing to debate with each other here... Raise the fines for parking illegally and other traffic offenses. Add an NPS donation line item on the tax return. Streamline the internal NPS system that deals with infrastructure conservation, preservation, and improvements . Its a red tape tar pit right now where any proposals take years to effectivelly see them completed. Theres my suggestions I've written to my congressman / senators.And you all should too insteading of preaching to your own

I feel like we went before the secret got out, mom. Gail Mathes. Of course we usually parked in our camping spot and took the buses around.

I was two times in US National Parks from France and I NEVER park outside from the parking lots, NEVER, even in Yellowstone where it’s very hard to find a place to park. I only wait ... it’s my respect ✊ for nature and Rangers job !

This chaos is nothing but parks inability to manage influx of visitors! Managing a decent parking space as the crowd is increasing during peak season is a must! Or it is not too far when ot will be disastrous for visitors and the park/employees! We have limited our visits thinking of the failed system they have created every year on year!

It hasn't helped that the park has actively been removing parking spaces, especially in the Valley. The installation of curbs has made it impossible to pull over for emergency vehicles.

Instead of banning all private autos and building more parking lots and the other drastic solutions just limit the number of cars allowed in. Yosemite used to stop cars at the gates a few years ago if the Valley was gridlocked but for some reason has stopped doing this the past few years.

We try and stay away from Yosemite in Summer lol! There are many beautiful parks in California that are less of a headache. I guess it depends if you don't mind sitting in gridlock, pressed in by Summer crowds. Defeats the purpose of getting away to the great outdoors though...

Too many people visit the parks and have absolutely no respect for them! Letting too many people in will only lead to ruining our national treasures!

Yosemite Rangers need to control the admission to the park!!! I hate going there during late spring and summer. Always overcrowded everywhere inside the park. I feel so sorry for the animals. Im sorry to say but its disgraceful.

This is what happens when there's So Many people allowed in the park- So crowded that there's no where To park.
I'm not condoning what they did but fault can be applied to the situation created by the way the park is currently run.

Protect the resource! The Organic Act allows us to preserve the park for this generation and the next. Ticketing and removing cars should be a straightforward decision. We do not need to accommodate all people all of the time. Thank you for this difficult work!

I keep telling people the place is dead on weekdays during the off season which is breathtakingly majestic. I've decided decades ago I'll never be able to visit during the summer.

Nice. It would be even nicer if y'all would enforce the 35mph speed limits on Wawona and Glacier Point Roads... nobody wants to hit a deer... but everyone drives so aggresively... most of them California license plates... I thought Californians were supposed to be chill. The Rangers need to stop shaking down the hippies and start changing the driving culture at Yosemite. If only for the wildlife.... #RunYourParkRight

Will the big oak flat wilderness office open after May 21 so we can pick up wilderness permit there? Thanks.

Is the east side of highway 120 already open all the way up to Tioga pass?

Is the transition system running on Tioga Rd before Monday?

Oh we are coming for a visit from UK in 2 weeks time.... Is the weather going to be better..... I'm very excited... Xx

Will there be any services or lodging available in the first 10 days to two weeks?

Yay!!! Headed there for my first visit on June 1st. Cannot wait! Was so hoping it would be open!

That Black bear has a cinnamon color to its coat.Thought it was a grizzly,at first till I looked closer.And I realize ,Yosemite,is too south for Grizzly!

Are cyclist now allowed prior to Monday?

These are a Few of my FAVORITE THINGS!!!!!!!! (Julie Andrews!) (For anybody who knows what I'm singing!!!!!)

Will any access to mariposa be open even to walk? It's one of the reasons we are coming!

Tioga Pass opening makes it hard to concentrate at work 😁

Can I just say that “liking “ Yosemite National Park on Facebook is one of the best things I have done in the cyber world. I love the serenity of the pictures and the reminder that peace and calm still exist and can be found if we only stop to look for them.☺️

Seems really early this year, is white wolf soon to follow?

if campgrounds are not open, is there any overnight camping allowed? Will Tuolumne meadows campground possibly open any earlier than July 14th?

Hi, does that mean that the trail to El Capitan is accessible as well? Planning the hike for the first weekend in June and hope it’ll work out :)

Lembert dome September 2017. Going back in 2018

Jodi Faust Michaela Tempas this is so exciting!!

Thank you for hearing my hopes!! Will be there sat-thurs and was really hoping it would open during that time!

As a former resident of Mammoth Lakes, California, this is the day we all waited for ... so we could get into Yosemite National Park. I was so fortunate to live in this beautiful area for 2 years. Love the Sierras.

I rode with my dad in 1951 from the west over the Tioga Pass road to Saddlebag Lake. I don’t recall the ride. I was 6 years old. However, my dad told me about the road conditions back then. A piece of cake in this age! Very spectacular!

We have driven Tioga road a number of times since 1981. Ate breakfast at the Tioga Pass Lodge on one trip. Beautiful drive, but sometimes a little scary for someone from Mississippi.

Ohhhh. I wanted to ride it on my bike this weekend but the weather forecast dissuaded me. Maybe next year!

We are headed there in kust less than 2 weeks. Our first time visiting. Can't wait.
Ralph, Brandi, and Logan

Leaving tomorrow for Yosemite.thanks for the update. Very excited.i was there when I was young and they had the firefalls

Each year, I so look forward to my time in the Fall at Yosemite !!!

Interesting how the branch in the foreground mimics the line of the mountains. Nice photo.

it's a marvelous system of co-dependency...hats off to the great creator, Mother Nature (whoever the hell she is...)

Beautiful back-lit leaves. I never was able to capture that light. You did it. Beautiful!

Coming very soon to SCDR - Franky (4399), a 2 year old, standard dachshund. Neutered, fully vaccinated, and microchipped, Franky is ready for a new and exciting home.

Franky is a dachshund from “the old school”. He has an “alpha” personality and only likes the dogs he chooses to like. In this case, he liked the female German Shepherd in his previous home, but not the male or any of the cats he was sharing his home with. After one too many altercations with the other male GSD in the home, the family decided that Franky really needed to find other accommodations where he can be King of the Universe, and perhaps have another female dachshund, no other breeds or cats. We agreed to help Franky find a home that fit his needs and personality.

Check out his extra-long body and classic Dachshund schnoze. But his best feature are his green eyes! Wow!

Interested in adopting Franky? Contact <[email protected]>. ...

I was horrified when I saw this but no one else around me seemed concerned. The only reason I didn't scream at this guy is because I thought he might fall!

Took this one last Monday. This is the top of Glacier Point. One misstep and she falls 1000 feet. @Yosemite National Park you might want to keep a few more rangers up there to stop these idiots.

We just came back last week. Yosemite is so much prettier on it's own anyway....

In National Parks we have a no selfie rule. Which means we politely ask another visitor to take our picture as well as offer to take theirs. The pictures come out better and I've had conversations with people from around the world.

Why can't people just take pictures of the beauty and not take up half of the picture with their heads? So stupid.

Pick up the book on deaths in Yosemite....available in all the park gift shops. Pretty graphic but good read before venturing into the backcountry, OR if you plan on doing something stupid. 🤔

Vernal Fall is a good illustration of the importance of safety. Just a short hike upriver from Vernal Fall are signs warning of extreme undertow at Emerald Pool, but it is so very challenging to protect people from their own terminal stupidity.

I've stood in that spot while 2 very small children were just upstream and on the wrong side of the railing! Their parents were fine with it and rolled their eyes at all of us telling (yelling) at them to get their kids. If they slipped in, they'd be over the edge in seconds. Stupid breeders.

Not merely a morbid book but also a good survival guide.

Yes do NOT do what I did in 1990 on top of Vernal Falls.

I watched a lady jump over and over on the cliff edge of half dome trying to get that perfect 'leaping' shot for Instagram, while a half dozen people yelled at her to stop.

At least one fool goes over almost every year.
I avoid the area in the summer.
Always some idiot on the other side of the rail. Can't stand to see it.

One of our favorite memories! We’ll be back this summer!

Saw someone climb out to the jetty at glacier point a few weeks back and take a pic of the Valley while laying on his stomach. I couldn’t look!

To me, the purpose of a photo is to have a remembrance for later. I want to remember the place, the moment, the beauty. I don’t go to National Parks to remember myself, so no need for selfies.

People don't realize how polished the granite is there. Literally slippery in tennis shoes when dry, let alone wet. Add some current pushing, even just a little, and you're gone.

People are to antisocial to just ask a passer by to take a photo nowadays. It blows my mind. “Let’s make sure I get a good photo of my arm and probably miss the whole backdrop behind me”.

And don't try taking one with a bear.

Sad that you have to remind folks to be safe....How many people have said, I just want one LAST selfie....mission accomplished.

Love the "No selfie" rule. I remember "Will you take my picture?" being the most common get acquainted question.

Very true! We saw a man climb over the railing at the top of Upper Yosemite Falls just to get that “perfect shot.”

The state and national parks have to put railings at State and National parks because of idiots who do not have the common sense and die. Then their families sue because their loved ones died...UGH! Maybe the government should send them a bill for search and rescue.

But then, you’ve got stupid people whom climb over the railings to get that so called special picture and it either ends up injurying them or killing them, those railings and warning signs are there for a reason, they are there for safety and to save your life, I know people are excited to be on vacation in a special place like Yosemite but, be responsible while having fun and obey the barriers put up.

Can you imagine all the people who would be over the edge taking "selfies" if the rail wasn't there! :)

Careful, a lone traverler died here cause he went over the rail for a picture. Hotel personal reported him missing when he failed to return to his room. Visitors found his camera back pack on the wrong side of the railing,and rangers found his body days later down river!☹️
