We stayed in one of the cabins in the middle of the village. The crew was nice and friendly but:
I will now take the risk to become an enemy to all Americans that love Yosemite. The whole place was an remarkable example on how tourism should not be performed. Have the park ever heard about eco tourism?. Hundreds and over hundreds of tents and cabins packed on a small area with muddy ground and high trees allowing no sun to come down to the ground. Washrooms and toilets that was built around 1950? and no refit since then. Horrible standard. The cabins were warm, yes but insulation was a joke and the windows was single and leaking all heat out in a flash. Have they ever heard about insulation ?? This is an awful example on how to waste energy. And why pack hundreds of tents and cabins so close? The only reason is to earn as much money as possible and no worries about nature nor animals. This was the worst Ive ever seen. The only solution is to take some bulldozers and take down the whole place, rebuild it with modern technology and insulation with eco thinking. reduce the amounts of cabins to less than half maybe just 30% and give space and room.
The Yosemite park is a beautiful place and incredible things to see and this joke of tourism the curry village was awful and destryed the whole experience. Next thing to be executed is the coffee house. How on earth do the management think when they have one small desk with a minimum of staff trying to serve all these people in the morning. I was first in line and payed 0701 and ordered one cappucino and one croissant. 0716 a had my coffee! 15 minutes to have one cup and I was the first. Imagine the rest of the poor ones after me.
So, please Managers, owners and county of Yosemite, make a good revision, look over all permits and standards, put your smart heads together, look on how others have solved eco tourism and a little elbow grease will do the trick, cause the nature in the Yosemite is worth it and our kids deserves a better legacy from You.
