Yosemite National Park has a ton of left over snow!

It's nearly May here in California yet Yosemite National Park has snowpack that's 200% above normal thanks to El Nino.  That's the good news, you can still catch some cool weather before the heat of the summer kicks us all in the nuts.   Plus there are some way cool waterfalls in the park thanks to the extra snow!

The bad news?  A lot of people are trying to get into the park therefore causing waiting lines for one of Yosemite's 900 campsite permits and permits for climbing popular Half Dome.   So what's a good entrepreneurial crook to do?  Purchase the tickets and scalp them on Craigslist!    Dozens of ads are being found offered prime camping slots this summer, marked up to $100 or $150 from the $20-per-night official cost available through the park's contractor, ReserveAmerica.

If you wanna climb Half Dome normally you'd just register for free with a $1.50 handling cost but these are being bought out too for purposes of profit.
