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

El Portal Boulder Bar

At the east end of El Portal, just west of Yosemite National Park’s boundary, changing river gradients, glacial history, and powerful floods have created a boulder bar with boulders much larger than typically found in such deposits. This is no ordinary boulder bar, however, for it contains massive boulders over a meter in diameter and weighing many tons.
