Yosemite Update - Mariposa Grove

The April 2014 edition of "Rick's Tips" covered Yosemite National Park.  I recently took guests to the Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias and learned that the tram tours through the Grove will be discontinued after this season.  You have until November 2 to take a ride through this forest of magnificent trees.  After that date, you'll have to hoof it.  

The park service has major plans to restore the Grove including construction of an accessible trail to the Grizzly Giant.  The Lower Grove will be closed from around May 2015 through November 2016 while the renovations are underway.  Full details are available here.
