  • I used to have a system to get a site, but I don’t know any more. I used to send in my reservation request via snail mail. It worked, but they got rid of that method. Any advice for beating the endless busy signals or website crashes that accompany the opening of a reservation period?


  • Hey i am a traveler from India. I will be in California during the month of February. Does Yosemite get frigid in that period? How easy/tough would it be to get a reservation for a room in January for the same.
