Yosemite From the Past

Yosemite Park Map

What a difference 80 years makes.  The average person won’t notice the old names for the trails and locations, but just about everyone should see the “Bear Feeding Platforms”, and realize that they are not that great of an idea anymore.  Also noticeable is the Big Oak Flat Road.  Go down on Odd Hours, Up on Even.  I can only guess how well that would work in modern times.

Naturally, the layout of the valley hasn’t changed that much, even the roads are more or less the same.  There’s no hotel at Glacier Point anymore, which is unfortunate because it’s such a pain to get up there, but that’s what camping is for.
