New fire!!


The “railroad” fire. south of Wawona.

The fire began yesterday, the 29th. It’s outside the park near Fish Camp – Sugar Pine Railroad area. Some building lost…railroad OK for now.

5% contained.  Plan on more smoke. It’s down south of the valley, but if winds are blowing be aware.  Most Wawona area attractions are closed due to another fire.

Valley is open. Highway 41 is closed into the park. Arrive via Hwy 140 or 120. Check road conditions first.

Carpe Diem!
