    The new names were terrible and I would never use them..... ever. I've been going to Yosemite for over 60 years and no way those name were in my vocabulary.

    Sixty-five years here, and can't agree more. At last, a bit of sanity!

    How unfortunate that Delaware North received even a penny. It should have been held responsible for the government's legal fees during this mess that it created.

    I found it curious how I didn't even remember the substitute names, nor did anyone else I've talked to. In fact, I totally forgot that the ruse had ever happened. We just kept referring to the traditional names as if nothing ever happened. But I did note that the Park was just buying time, and that the older signage was in place all along, and the substitutes signs merely applied like a veneer, designed to be easily removed.

    Interesting, the FOX site "news" offers an article published by CNN!

    Well, what seems traditional now has its roots in something otherwise. When I grew up near there, we contemptuously referred to Yosemite as "Curry National Park" because it was being run like a private concession. To many of us, "Camp Curry" is itself just an older version of the same kind of corporate insult. "The Ahwahnee Hotel" at least gives tribute to the name of the tribe which originally lived there, the Ahwahneechee. So too does the little town of Ahwahnee outside the Park. Of course, all the Indians were all chased out of the Park to make room for the tourist industry, which included several big past hotels well before the Ahwahnee was built, and only a small number of descendants remain.

    Good news about the old names returning.
    Now if they'd only return Housekeeping to being Camp 16 and get rid of the Yosemite Park & Curry Company DP camp-esque concrete structures, Aramark may be on to something.
    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.
