Amid economic woes, more people seek solace in Yosemite
A week in Yosemite National Park is a pretty affordable vacation, especially if you prefer a tent to the Ahwahnee Hotel. That fact -- along with several free entrance days -- has kept visitors flowing.

The park recorded about 3.9 million visits last year, official statistics show. That's about 400,000 more visits than during 2007, and more visits than all but three other years in the park's history.

In the 1990s, crowds caused delays, closings and consternation. That's not been as much of a problem this year.
