i only use lol in response when i actually lol!!!

just a note to those thinking of hitting the park in the winter, a call ahead should be made as many of the snow gates are already up that will restrict travel deep into the park.

yes, they are just trees.  but they are trees that are unlike any others in the world.  traveling through the park then into yosemite should be on everyone's bucket list.
