Yosemite Park officials plan to open Tioga Pass Road a week from today. Park Ranger Rae Santos says
the opening is unusual, but most of the snow is gone and there´s no avalanche threat this year.
She says motorists will be able to see some
extraordinary views from the road.
Services like gasoline, food and lodging won´t be available along the road for another couple of weeks. Official
opening of the road will be noon next Saturday.
