Slide Threat Permanently Closes Many Yosemite Cabins

Yosemite's Curry Village has now lost over one-third of its cabin capacity, as 233 of the Village's 618 cabins will be closed permanently due to danger from possible rock slides.

A major slide from Glacier Point hit the park on October 8th.

A view of Curry Village wood and tent cabins taken last summer:

The number of hotel rooms and cabins has steadily decreased at Yosemite in recent years.

The L.A. Times reports it could take over half a decade to build new accommodations due to judicial restrictions on park construction...yet another example of a judge who has a one-man kingdom, making law from the bench.

Meanwhile, the large reduction in room capacity means it's going to be much more difficult for visitors to Yosemite to book reservations.
