The Yosemite Conservancy has just published a new Yosemite road guide to replace the venerable Yosemite Road Guide that was getting long in tooth.

The new book is called The Road Guide to Yosemite and it's written by longtime Yosemite ranger Bob Roney. Ranger Bob also supplies a lot of the book's color photographs. Yes that's right, unlike the previous editions of the Yosemite Road Guide, this book is in color with color photographs and color illustrations.

It's in the same form-factor as the Yosemite Conservancy's popular guidebook The Complete Guidebook to Yosemite National Park.

I bought a copy of the book on Saturday at the Yosemite Bookstore.

The book will be available for sale on Amazon on April 9th:

And here's the writeup of the book from the Yosemite Conservancy's website:

Yosemite Road Guide
Completely revised and updated for 2013 by Bob Roney

The classic Yosemite Road Guide has undergone a complete makeover! Motorists have long-deserved an all-new guide to the major sights and stops along Yosemite’s majestic major roadways — one which not only lists distances, facilities, and things to do, but that also provides enlightening stories, park history, and natural history in a most engaging way. The wait is over. Ranger Bob Roney has applied his deep knowledge of the park and renowned story-telling skills to give drivers and their companions what they need to know, where they need to know it. Keyed to markers newly placed throughout the park, and packed with maps, illustrations, and dozens of full-color photographs, The Road Guide to Yosemite makes it safe and easy to stop and enjoy the world-famous scenery.

112 pages, softcover, color photos and maps, published January 2013”

Unlike Amazon, it's currently for sale and in stock on the Yosemite Conservancy's online store: The Road Guide to Yosemite
