    According to http://www.nps.gov/yose/planyourvisit/conditions.htm, all the roads in Yosemite are open, including the one to Glacier Point.

    other CA mountain highways of note:

    CA108, Sonora Pass, open
    CA4, Ebbetts Pass, open.

    Lassen Park Highway at Lassen Volcanic Park is expected to be open on May 18th.

    I know where I'm going!
    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.

    I was just up at Glacier Point yesterday, so I can personally attest that the road is open, as is the Tioga Pass road.

    I have not been to Yosemite since 1995. Being able to casually mention "Yeah I was there yesterday" must be joy.

    Sonora pass opened a few weeks ago. If any of you swing by let me know as I live about 20 mins from the gates. I would love to meet some fellow artist, and I don't care what format you shoot. It would just be nice to get together.

    It is a 10 to 12 hour drive for me...but I still find an excuse to go a couple times a year! Usually when the pass is closed, though.

    Hi Vaughn,

    I will be in Yosemite for a few days in October with a couple other photographers. The pass will still be open. If you're interested in meeting up to shoot and discuss photography, let me know. I hope your minivan is doing alright!

    I might take you up on that Brian, but I'll have to sell a couple photographs first to pay for the gasoline it would take! Right now that is beyond my budget. October is when I like to start diving back into the Redwoods -- and they are only an hour and 3.5 gallons of gasoline away!
