Video Phone Installed at Yosemite Lodge

July 19, 2012 Posted by: Jessica Cole

Over the winter, thanks to some amazing teamwork and persistence, we got a Sorenson Video Phone installed in the lobby at Yosemite Lodge.  Hurray!  Now, even if cell phone reception is wonky in the valley, Deaf visitors can still contact their family and friends back home. The VP cannot accept incoming calls, but if you want to chat with me about your upcoming visit, send me an email with your VP number and a good time to call you back.  The VP is available 24/7; just ask for the remote at the front desk.

    I Hope that all national parks will have video phone for deaf user only, soon, so it won't be so difficult to communicate/contact our family, etc. Rv-er

Train traveling along the Merced River to Yosemite National Park.

Starting in 1907, the Yosemite Valley Railroad brought passengers bound for Yosemite Valley up the Merced River canyon to El Portal. From there, they would take stagecoaches to the Valley. Some of the old train cars are now on display in El Portal.
