Glacier Point Road Open Again

I saw this at the West Coast Imaging blog yesterday:

GLACIER POINT ROAD TO OPEN IN YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK
The Glacier Point Road in Yosemite National Park will open for all vehicles on Friday, November 21, 2008, at 8:00 a.m. The road has been closed due to ice and snow on the road. However, with the recent warm weather, the road will reopen to all traffic.

After the October and November storms – especially the early November storm – trans-Sierra highways and roads like the Glacier Point Road closed, at it seemed likely that the closures might be for the season. But since that time we’ve had “good” weather in California, and apparently the early snow has melted.

November at Glacier Point is a special time. If you go at dawn there is a very good chance that you may have Sunrise over the Clark Range and the Sierra crest entirely to yourself!
