Does anyone know if they will be running the Glacier Point shuttle--the one that runs from the Badger Pass (that is, Yosemite Ski and Snowshoe Center) parking lot and Glacier Point itself? This was very useful for doing semi-loops involving the Bridalveil, Ostrander, Mono Meadow, and Glacier Point trailheads, which coincidentally lead to some un-done Trail Quest segments...

Seems like the answer is yes.

https://www.nps.gov/yose/planyourvisit/glacierpoint.htm

"From mid-May to September, you may be required to use a free shuttle from Badger Pass to Glacier Point between 10 am to 4:30 pm when the Glacier Point parking lot fills.If you arrive at the Badger Pass turnoff before 10 am or after 4:30 pm, you can drive to Glacier Point (and all trailheads). If you arrive between 10 am and 4:30 pm and the Glacier Point parking lot is full, park rangers will have you park at Badger Pass and use the free shuttle to get to Glacier Point or other locations along the Glacier Point Road. Parking is available at Badger Pass for RVs and trailers.

The free shuttle leaves Badger Pass every 20 minutes and stops at Sentinel Dome/Taft Point trailhead, Washburn Point, and Glacier Point. Upon request or flag-down, the shuttle stops at McGurk Meadow, Ostrander Lake, and Mono Meadow trailheads. The first shuttle leaves Badger Pass at 10 am, the last shuttle leaves Badger Pass at 4:30 pm, and the last shuttle leaves Glacier Point at 5:30 pm. (No shuttle service of any kind is available after 5:30 pm.)"

Also useful for determining if Bear boxes are present... and how many... the orientation... and such... It's been weighing on my chick-on brain...
