Yosemite National Park is expected to be back open full time late today for the first time since Sunday's power outage. Thursday officials allowed visitors into the park to enjoy the snowy sights during the day time only.

Despite being open, the park remained mostly empty. PG&E crews say they expect to restore power to the park by this evening.

Right now over 500 customers are without power in Yosemite and El Portal. Some buildings in the park are running on generator power, including the Awhanee Hotel.
