Winter Rangers are back

Postby balzaccom » Thu Dec 21, 2023 7:33 am

Each year an intrepid couple of NPS rangers spend the winter at Tuolumne Meadows in Yosemite National Park. Their posts are charming, informative, and, at time, almost poetic.

Here's their first post from this year: https://www.nps.gov/yose/blogs/update-f ... 0-2023.htm

Thanks for posting, that first photo is breathtaking, a reminder of why I like to be there...

Snow pack seems to be continuing to recover nicely, more snow since that was posted too. A ways to go, but continuing to look like summer '24 may be OK for water availability in the backcountry.

Yep. We were at 89% of average before this last storm. We should be in good shape now! Fingers crossed.

The Equinox is here, and the rangers are reporting back, with spring conditions on the rise.

The last report of the season.

Those snow rangers in Tuolumne Meadows are on their way down, but have posted one last report from the High Sierra. As usual, it's a great read, with both info and photos. Check it out--and be happy that spring is on its way!
