I'm thinking of going down there to take a look.

However given that California wants a bailout, too, I wouldn't doubt the snow plows on 120 are parked. Sonora Pass 108 as well.

Maybe this storm and the cold temps will inspire the trees in Lee Vining Canyon to change colors.

I understand that now (October 15) Tioga and Glacier Point Road are open daily, but closed to overnight parking. Winter's on its way.

The Half Dome cables are scheduled to be coming down today.

Closed to overnight parking is the norm after October 15th.

Has the park said if Tioga Pass is expected to reopen, or is this it for the year?

It is very unlikely that the road will open again before spring.

Snow shoes or skis maybe.

It's listed as closed, and normally with any storm after November 1, it will stay that way, so I wouldn't depend on going up there any time soon.

Glacier Point road is also closed now.
