This is not so much a question as an expression of incredulity — they’re going to close El Capitan for a year and not fix the hike/bike trail to Refugio? Did I read that correctly? All the improvements they’re going to make are at the entrance and it’s going to take a year? Did State Parks, like, talk to any people who actually use the parks about this? I guess that is a bunch of questions after all. Sorry! Thanks much for the article.
