    I rode on YARTS!

    $20 r/t from Fresno to Yosemite Valley including entrance fee.
    Other routes depart from Merced, Mammoth Lakes and Sonora.
    You don't need a permit to enter the park on YARTS, which is why I rode the bus as the permits where sold out the day I needed to be up there.
    The Valley had reduced occupancy because of Covid, and the traffic was light and plenty of animals were out and about.
    However YARTS accesses Tuolumne Meadows, White Wolf and Mariposa Grove so there service to many trail heads accessing the back country.

    No tram service in the Valley or Glacier Point this year though.

    Put your LF kit in a backpack and you'll fit right in!
    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.

    Sounds like something from Dr. Seuss! But a question: is it possible to get the bus to stop and let you off someplace that is not necessarily a trail head (but is otherwise visually inspiring) - then flag down another bus after you've finished photographing at that location?

    Of course...a Tardis! Plop down anywhere/anytime...plus - much bigger on the inside than on the outside! You know what this means? Yes...a Tardis Darkroom! Oh...this is so very exciting!

    Probably not, but check their website.
    If so, you'd have wait a long time between buses.
    For example there are only three buses a day on the Hwy 41 route.

    Good luck with getting the environmental impact statements and the permits from the NPS.
