Campground and roads open Friday. Will the portal store too?
Probably not, but I'm planning on heading up there this weekend and will report back.
Looks like everything is finally falling into place. Hiking is very low risk for covid. If they're opening up the gate and the campground, surely the store and permits will follow very soon. I can't imagine why they would cancel permits for next week if they are opening up camping access right up to the trailhead. Don't most people that camp there to do Whitney?
