FILE - In this Oct. 8, 2008, file photo, a dust cloud is seen from the Glacier Point overlook during a rock fall that damaged lodging facilities at 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 nation’s system of national parks. Now large swaths of popular haunts deemed unsafe are closing as officials acknowledge they knew for more than a decade ago that unsuspecting tourists were being lodged in harm’s way. On Thursday, June 14, 2012,  the National Park Service will announce that potential danger from the unstable 3,000-foot-tall slab of granite known as Glacier Point, a picturesque promontory that for decades has provided a dramatic backdrop to park entertainment events, will leave uninhabitable large parts of Yosemite Valley’s most popular lodging areas.
