WATCH: Did You Know There Was A Hippy Riot at YOSEMITE on July 4th 1970?

It was the summer of 1970 and hippies poured into Yosemite to get closer to nature but not for an overnight excursion or even a weekend, these hippies set up shop and didn’t show any signs of leaving. That was until everything came to a head on July 4th 1970 when the unwanted guests faced off with the park rangers in a battle royal on the meadow.  Looks like the hippies beat it and order was restored.

Love the open ended statement at the end of this,“The park service learned a lesson that day, and applied to the future.” I wish they would have elaborated on that.
