Does anyone know if the roads surrounding Bodie, Masonic and Aurora have thawed out yet ? or are even passible by 4x4. I have a long awaited itch to get out of the house.

I past by on 395 about 3 weeks ago and the road to Bodie was blocked with signs saying closed. Didn't seem to me it would have been due to weather.

There could still be snow up there, and can be through May. I don't know for sure if that is the case, here, though. I have heard that the the last portion of the main route in to Bodie is closed, but it's apparently ok to hike in. I was under the impression maybe they were doing some road work or something, but the person who gave me the information didn't tell me one way or the other on that.

You could always call the park before you decide to go and they can inform you of current road and weather conditions.
