Yosemite Has Doubts About Visitor Count

Sponsored by:

Yosemite National Park – Rangers at Yosemite National Park are looking for a faulty car-counting device after discovering their official visitor numbers were down 8 percent, although last month was one of the busiest they can remember.

Rangers also had a problem with their computer system, which registered 92,000 visitors entering through the park´s east gate at Tioga Pass.

That entrance was closed down most of June, and rangers estimate that only 3,600 people entered through that gate after it opened June 24.
