All Roads in Yosemite National Park to Remain Closed Through the Evening
All roads leading into Yosemite Valley will remain closed through this evening, Friday, January 22, due to snow, ice, and fallen trees. Road closures include Highways 41 (Wawona Road), 120 (Big Oak Flat Road), and 140 (El Portal Road). Additionally, the Badger Pass Road and the Hetch Hetchy Road will also remain closed.

This is no ordinary boulder bar, however, for it contains massive boulders over a meter in diameter and weighing many tons.
