      Charlie, we’re not clear on exactly what you are asking for. There is a link in the article provided in “Check nps.gov/yose for updates”, in the article for information on status of the park’s facilities, amenities, road conditions, etc. Please look at the link to see if it answered your question Unlike “State of the Inyo” from the PIO for Inyo Nation Forest, we do not get anything like it from Yosemite, although we will contact them just to see if they might. Looking back into our archives, we can’t find a single example of our reporting on the status of Tuolumne Meadows specifically as a part of our regular reporting. Thanks for your comment.
