Brent and Luisa Haddad of Santa Cruz pause to take in the view on the Sugar Pine Bridge in Yosemite Valley Tuesday, March 12, 2013.

So would bicycle rentals. The pool would be removed from the Ahwahnee Hotel. The ice rink torn out at Curry Village among other changes. The $235 million "Merced River Plan" has been more than 10 years in the making, and tied up amid numerous lawsuits by environmentalists. (Patrick Tehan/Staff)
