I know - seems a little strange that I'd be worried about internet access for my trip next week. However - we've got some financial interests that we're looking to keep an eye on. Maybe even post a few photos and an in-progress trip report.

The price seems reasonable at $5.95 for up to 7 days and up to 7 logins with their wireless coverage. I've seen crazy prices like $4 for up to 2 hours at an airport, and recently we paid $10.95/day at a hotel. It may be around Yosemite Lodge, but that's not a problem. I can think of worse things than to be enjoying a beer at the Mountain Room while my wife and I are checking on our retirement accounts.

Does anyone know how this works? I'm unclear on what a "login" is. I'm not sure that if it becomes disconnected, we somehow use up one of the allotted logins. Of if I put it to sleep will it log us off immediately. How's the signal quality and speed?

I do remember getting free internet access at the Jackson Lake Lodge in Grand Teton back in 2006. It felt like there were 100 people connected to a single 1.5 Mbit/sec line. There were at least 15 people in the lobby, and probably several times that using from elsewhere in the Lodge.

Well - asnswering my own question, it's not bad. I'm typing from Yosemite Lodge right now. Seems that they give a login from a list and you have 7 times to log in.
It logs out once you exit the browser where you logged in.

All I got is what I took from Olmstead Point. I would upload it now, but the last time it took forever. I'll wait till I get home and the speeds are faster.

I know. It's just looking atm (rather than from) Clouds Rest. However - there was no way my wife was letting me hike to Clouds Rest by myself, and she wasn't about to go with me.
