I'll be using that term a lot in the future.

The oddest part of that article, is that the Bee didn't even bother to make a light edit of the AP article and mention Yosemite, even though their offices are just down the street from the Fresno-Yosemite International Airport (a grandiose name if there ever was one).

Well, there's this:

Yosemite has a big plan for 2019. It includes traffic fixes and mountain lion poop.

link still works for me

"Ships weighing more than 1,000 tonnes will be rerouted away from certain waterways from September.

The move follows an accident in June in which a ship collided with a dock, injuring five people."

Nice piece for the Conservancy, but so far, traffic has been pretty bad this year. Next year will be the big traffic study. The year after that will be rough - Glacier Point Road may close for the whole year, which will focus traffic in the Valley.
