Tioga Pass Comfort Station – Yosemite National Park CA

Description

This Tioga Pass comfort station was built by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) in 1934.  It sits near the Entrance/Ranger Station at the east entrance to Yosemite National Park, which was built earlier.  

The building is done in classic National Park rustic style, with walls constructed of large boulders. Comfort stations was the name used at the time for restrooms with additional washing facilities, which this one does not have; hence, it is literally just a ‘restroom’.

The Tioga Pass road, which was largely built by the CCC, is closed from the first major snowstorm in November until early summer because of snow.
