A Brief Sierra Update

SFGate’s Tom Stienstra posted a brief run down of Sierra Nevada conditions. Not a lot of detail, but a few interesting facts and observations including:

  • Crane Flat campground in Yosemite will open very soon and Tioga Road campgrounds will likely open later in June.
  • Although we had a drier than usual spring, he reports that cooler than normal spring temperatures have slowed runoff a bit.

By the way, if you look at the photos accompanying the article and you eventually find yourself ascending the cable route on Half Dome… don’t do it the way the folks in the photo are doing it!
