Flying in Y

Any report on conditions there? Will flying be possible? Park Service says the campground should open Aug. 1.

Jay reports that the LZ is dry and that the river is floatable.

The River

Post by gregangsten » Thu Aug 10, 2017 8:56 am

...and Greg confirms both statements. Nice flying both Saturday and Sunday with a big waterfall to fly by and nice floating as well. Marshall was quite stoked to get his first flights from Glacier Point. Very cool new T-shirts this year happily replacing the old ones with the outsized glider drawing.
I've never seen the Bridalveil campground so crowded though. All the other high first-come-first-served campsites were closed for one reason or another, plus there were a lot of firemen occupying a bunch of sites for a week or two. We couldn't get in there on Friday night so had to camp outside the park until Saturday when I scarfed up a spot.
Lots of traffic and other changes in the park this year. The boat rental has moved across the loop and is now on the connector road that runs from the village to the south side loop.
