Sure hope it does, however the news the past 24 hours has not been good.

Yup I’ve seen that it’s closed until Sunday at least, I heard on the news that they were discussing their options today on whether to re-open or not.. even in Fresno the air quality isn’t great! We only have 3 days left now so we were hoping to even just take a drive into the valley!

"Through Sunday" means to me that there's no chance of it opening tomorrow; Monday would be the first possible day of opening.

If you have 3 days left on your trip, don't spend them all in Fresno waiting on word about Yosemite. Squoia-Kings Canyon seems like the best alternative.

I spent most of today in Kings Canyon today. Head up there tomorrow if you can.

How was Kings Canyon PNWF? Air Quality? We’re up in the air right now.

Views were compromised but surprisingly I had no trouble breathing. My travel partner said that there were at least 25% more visitors than usual.

Crowded, but not like Yosemite. Hot, but some breezes. River full of swimmers.
