What would you change here? Personally, I'd change the grazing item. Bring your own weed-free horse food.Regulations

Cross-country or off-trail travel with stock is prohibited.
Stock users are prohibited from establishing new trails and from the short cutting of trails and switchbacks.
Only well broken, properly shod, gentle stock in good healthy condition should be used in the park.
Llamas are not allowed on the High Sierra Camp Loop, the Vernal/Nevada Falls corridor, or the river trail from Nevada Fall to Merced Lake. Exceptions may be made for Pacific Crest Trail and John Muir Trail users with written permission of the Superintendent (PO Box 577, Yosemite, CA 95389).

Grazing is permitted except within four miles of trailheads and paved roads or immediately surrounding any of the High Sierra Camps.
Tying to trees for periods longer than is needed to load and unload is prohibited.
When picketed on a line, stock must be tied so they cannot chew on tree bark or eat the leaves of woody vegetation.
