Yosemite National Park Temporarily Closes All Roads
All roads leading into Yosemite Valley are temporarily closed due to snow, ice, and fallen trees. Highways 41 (Wawona Road) and 120 (Big Oak Flat Road) into Yosemite National Park are closed at this time due to snowy and icy conditions. Additionally, Highway 140 (El Portal Road) into Yosemite Valley is temporarily closed due to fallen trees on the roadway. The Badger Pass Road and the Hetch Hetchy Road are also closed at this time.
Did You Know?
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.
