It's looking more and more like there will not be a budget passed on time. If it doesn't get passed, the park will close on Friday.

The Border Patrol would remain on duty, mail would be delivered, and Social Security checks should go out on time. But a looming government shutdown could stall tax refunds, close national parks and museums, and put tens of thousands of Californians temporarily out of work.

Damn it! I just got here yesterday..

Girlfriend is doing her job interview today, then we'll hopefully be seeing some Redwoods, waterfalls, wildflowers, etc. But if this shutdown happens, I guess we'll be using state parks to see all those things.

You can still see them this weekend. Also, the Hite's Cove Trail will be open. There is always the Nelder Grove just off of Hwy 41. Lots of nice trees and wildflowers. It's the only place I've seen striped and spotted coral root growing next to each other.

And there is always the infamous view of Half Dome from Turlock. In fact, tomorrow could actually be a good day for that it you brought your big telephoto lens!

The day after a cold front rainstorm a good day for spotting Yosemite from a distance is it? Might have to try that... I have my Sony A55 and 300mm telephoto with me on this trip.

I just heard John Boehner told other GOP members that a deal has been made.
