Planning a trip to the high country this weekend? The Tuolumne Meadows winter rangers reported 8-16 inches of new snow above 8,600 feet elevation with the storm that came in earlier this week. Read their entire update here: http://www.nps.gov/yo…/blogs/Update-for-February-11-2015.htm.
Freezing temperatures, combined with more water than usual below Yosemite Falls, caused some frazil ice to form this week in Yosemite. Learn more about frazil ice at http://www.nps.gov/yose/planyourvisit/frazilice.htm.
