Tourists soon will have the chance to help guide Yosemite rangers' plans to revamp viewing areas of the park's most famous granite icons.
Park officials announced a proposal this week to redesign overlooks and vistas of the park's cherished monoliths, including Glacier Point, Ulmsted Point and Tunnel View, seen above.
The plans include cutting down cedar and pine trees and overgrown manzanita to open vistas onto Bridalveil Fall, El Capitan, Half Dome and other peaks that comprise some of Ansel Adams' trademark photographs.
The public has through Sept. 17 to comment on the plan, which rangers say would improve views at about 200 viewpoints throughout the park.
Never miss a local story.
A final decision on the proposal is expected by winter 2011.
