Video Phone Installed at Yosemite Lodge

July 19, 2012 Posted by: Jessica Cole

Over the winter, thanks to some amazing teamwork and persistence, we got a Sorenson Video Phone installed in the lobby at Yosemite Lodge.  Hurray!  Now, even if cell phone reception is wonky in the valley, Deaf visitors can still contact their family and friends back home. The VP cannot accept incoming calls, but if you want to chat with me about your upcoming visit, send me an email with your VP number and a good time to call you back.  The VP is available 24/7; just ask for the remote at the front desk.

    I Hope that all national parks will have video phone for deaf user only, soon, so it won't be so difficult to communicate/contact our family, etc. Rv-er

Upper Yosemite Fall with spring runoff

Yosemite Falls is fed mostly by snowmelt. Peak flow usually happens in late May, but by August, Yosemite Falls is often dry. It begins flowing again a few months later, after winter snows arrive.
