Tioga Road plowing started?

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

Sure thing Rlown, I'll keep an eye out for them trout, and yes I'll be going up
near the falls area, which will be flooded as it all ways is in the early season.

looks like another 10" up at Tioga today, with this latest storm. Even White wolf got a few inches.

And the storm isn't done yet.

Looks like the road is getting drifted in again at Tioga Pass.:)
Piece of cake.

Tioga road to open today (to the park gate only). I'll be up there this weekend to ride some corn. I'll post photos if I can.

The corn was killer, but I ended up going to the upper part of Lundy Canyon and not Tioga. Just sooooo many places to chose from. Im glad I did, because I discovered that beavers had made a new lake out of the once little pond. If it holds it may make for some bigger brook trout! Otherwise the snow is melting fast. I may not get another chance to go make turns which is a major bummer. Looks like the current project I am working on out of town may go longer than expected.
