The Mariposa Grove Road in Yosemite National Park will open for the season Friday, April 15, 2011 at 9:00 a.m. The road provides visitor access to the Mariposa Grove of Big Trees, the largest grove of Giant Sequoia in Yosemite National Park. The road is located near the park’s South Entrance, on Highway 41. Some commercial services within the Mariposa Grove will open later in the day. Additionally, tram tours are slated to begin operating over the next several weeks. There are vault toilets available in the parking area. Visitors are urged to drive with caution as snow and ice may still be present on the road. The Mariposa Grove Road may intermittently close due to weather conditions.

I was really hoping to see the Mariposa Grove when I was in Yosemite last week, but my tour bus did not stop there and the shuttle was not running yet. Just one more reason for me to visit Yosemite again some day. smiling smiley

Yeah, it is definitely worth a second visit. Every time I go, I always feel like I haven't seen everything I wanted to see. I find it takes a few years for me to check things off my list.

You could easily spend years exploring Yosemite and still not have seen everything. There's a LOT more than just the valley.
