There is a new way for tourists to enjoy our local mountains called the "Majestic Mountain Loop."
It's a 3-day plan for people to explore Yosemite, Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks.
You'll start hearing a lot more about it from local visitors bureaus. the Fresno airport and the National Park Service.
Rhonda Jorn with Fresno Yosemite International airport said, "We're working on somewhat of a passport program, where if you come in and you finish three parks in three days, you get a big swag bag, and a shirt "I rocked the loop" and all this kind of stuff. It basically says, 'You came, you concurred, you saw all the awesome things you could possibly be seeing in the parks."
Also according to the Fresno Bee, there's a plan to build a foot-bridge underneath Yosemite Falls that would be part of a $200 million renovation plan over the next 15 years.
The outdoor ice rink at Curry Village will also apparently be taken out or replaced.
A large chunk of the cash will go toward a plan to limit the number of daily visitors to Yosemite Valley, that sees about 4 million visitors every year.
