Boulder atop debris in 2008


In this Monday, Oct. 20, 2008 file photo, a boulder sits atop debris after it fell in Curry Village in Yosemite National Park, Calif. Falling boulders are the single biggest force shaping Yosemite Valley, one of the most popular tourist destinations in the national park system. Now swaths of some popular haunts are closing for good after geologists confirmed that unsuspecting tourists and employees are being lodged in harm's way. On Thursday, June 13, 2012, the National Park Service will announce that potential danger from the unstable 3,000-foot-tall Glacier Point, a granite promontory that for decades has provided a dramatic backdrop to park events, will leave some of the valley's most popular lodging areas permanently uninhabitable.
