Park offers free admission

Jill Ballinger/GAZETTE EDITOR

In celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Yosemite National Park will offer free admission into the park on Monday, Jan. 21.  The fee free waiver is for all visitors in honor of the holiday.

Fees being waived for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day include the fees associated with entrance into the Park only.  All other fees associated with camping, lodging, or activities within the Park are not waived.  The fee waiver is good for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.

The Park has experienced a spectacular winter thus far, with an abundance of snowfall throughout the Park.  The floor of Yosemite Valley is blanketed in snow and Yosemite Falls, Bridalveil Fall, Vernal Fall, and other waterfalls in Yosemite Valley are flowing due to the higher elevation snow and the recent snow.

Visitors coming to the Park over the weekend and on the fee free day are urged to be aware of snow and ice on the roadway and that chain restrictions may apply on all roads within the Park.  For updated weather and road information call 372-0200.
