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.

Sorry, I made a couple goofs. Please pen and ink these corrections:
Pg 171 Last line, change 1871 to 1796.
Pg 186 Last line, change August to July.
PS – About $8.00 on Whole Foods….ooops – Amazon.
For you late season campers….Porcupine Campground JUST opened. Boy, that was late.
Did anyone go to Yosemite today? Free day. How were the crowds? Probably down from summer since many schools are back in session. Anyone have horror stories? It was a 2 hr drive down to Curry on weekends. Ugh. 5 Million last year…I bet we top that with the waterfalls pumping.

So far….no falls off Half Dome. and permits work!! If you still want to do it….you’ll need a permit via the 2-day lottery. READ my tips info.
No updated news on us getting a new Superintendent OR a new head of the NPS. Post for the director has been vacant since the election – new regime and all.
