— Visitors on Monday will get free admission into Yosemite National Park to commemorate Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

While entrance into the park is free, all other fees associated with camping, lodging or activities within the park will remain the same.

Officials said the park has an abundance of snowfall, the Yosemite Valley is blanketed with snow.

The park’s waterfalls are flowing due to the higher elevation snow and the recent snow. Visitors should be aware of snow and ice on the roadway and that chain restrictions may apply on roads within the park.

For updated weather and road information, call (209) 372-0200.
