Tioga Pass is Open!

Tioga Pass opened May 21st. Now I wait for Tuolumne Meadows campground to open, then I'll be off to Yosemite. This page estimates it opening July 15. It also shows the opening dates for all the other campgrounds.

UPDATE: Tuolumne Meadows campground is open! It opened a few days ago on June 20.

Nice. That should be fun. I'm looking forward to my backpacking trip this month. We are starting in Tuolumne Meadows and heading down to the valley.

Have you found any 4wd off road trails in Yosemite? Or is that not allowed in YNP?

No 4wd in the park. Although a couple sites in the Tuolumne Meadows campground might qualify. I did once take an interesting 4wd road from the forest west of the park that emptied me into the park (bypassing the normal entrances). There's plenty of it down around Mammoth and Bishop.
