Travelers will soon have the opportunity to help guide Yosemite rangers’ plans to refurbish viewing areas of the park’s most popular granite icons.


Officials of Yosemite declared a proposal this week to revamp popular over looks and vistas of the park’s valued monoliths, including Glacier Point, Ulmsted Point and Tunnel View. 


The plans include removing cedar and pine trees and unkempt Manzanita to unlock vistas onto Bridalveil Falls, El Captain, Half Dome and additional peaks that encompass Ansel Adams’ photographs.


The public has until the end of September 17 to comment on the presented plan. Rangers say the plan would enhance views at about 200 different viewpoints throughout the park. A final decision on the plan is anticipated by winter of 2011.
