the rumors are out there, so I will do my part in spreading it!

eastfork is open!

muddy, yet open....

keep us posted Mimi!

what a great looking place! green meadows and no snow!! at first I was thinking I had never heard of it.. then I googled.. and while I may not know the name, I have been there as well.. tho it was along time ago!

your treks always amaze me:)

Eastfork has a lot of sites that are first come first serve...     (tho I haven't heard if eastfork is open yet?)    but it is at a lower elevation than the campground at the lake, so it will open before that one.

well Bodie is somewhat open!

the main road into town off of 395 will open tomorrow... but the park is open now.  (you can drive to within a mile of town via the cottonwood canyon road, and hike down from there)

but be advised..... THERE IS NO PUBLIC WATER AVAILABLE!     which also means the flush toilets are not working.  tho the park has brought in porta poitties for everyones use.   there are also some areas that will be taped / fenced off for public safety.    (all due to the earthquake damage from dec)   so bring drinking water!

so excited..   lil grey is telling me... walker burger is open, bodie is open...  road trip???? :)

and french camp is open...

and the road is open to the pack station:)

this was posted by bishop creek and big pines campgrounds today:

If you are planning on visiting our campgrounds in the Big Pine Canyon I am sorry to say they will not be open for Fishmas. We had some problem with water and they will be open in a couple of weeks.
The Bitterbrush, Big Trees, Forks, Intake 2, and Bishop Park campgrounds should be open for the fishmas. 4 Jefferies will be closed due to water problems.

3) Sabrina Rd. - CLOSED- Inyo section, one lane clearing operations to the (unplowed) USFS parking lot, 0-5’ of snow on roadway.

Caltrans section, unknown timeline to opening.

4) North Lake Rd. – CLOSED- Currently 0-5’ of snow on road way, due to the narrow and hazardous sections of road, there are no immediate plans to open North Lake Rd. conditions will be monitored and reassessed May 1st.
