Thanks for posting Shawn!

It appears the memo had an error and the actual road opening date is May 21st, not May 2nd.

Too bad! It would have been nice to be able to get up there in early May, especially this year. :(

Thanks Roo; you beat me to it. I was just going to correct the date.

I too was hoping the original date was correct, "oh well".

On a dry year like this, I wonder why they don't open earlier.
