The daily winter chores

It's a snowy job and someone has to do it. Everyday it isn't seriously snowing, someone has to drive to Paradise, and start the road clearing equipment. While someone clears the road to Longmire, someone clear the road and parking lot at Paradise. And if you want to know how they get there (since no one lives at Paradise).

Those same someones has to get up early every day and drive there, no matter the snow and roads, no matter the cold and risk, they just do it because it's part of the work they do and enjoy. So when you go to Paradise in the winter, don't forget to remember someone cleard the road and made the parking lot that day.

You can see this on the NPS' Webcams.
