New chains at the Yosemite Garage

We had to buy new snow chains at the Yosemite Garage in Yosemite Village. The guys at the garage are kept busy in winter with cars that won't start and inexperienced drivers who slide off the road.

Snow on the All Year Highway

Snowstorm near Pohono Bridge on the All Year Highway. To preserve access to the valley even during storms this road is plowed and sanded continuously. The other two roads, Big Oak Flat and Wawona, often close temporarily during heavy snowfall.
