Half Dome – Yosemite Musing
First off, welcome to a new year. What were to doing today at 1:11 PM today. The date is 1-1-11 … gosh. The next time this will occur is Feb 22, 2022 …. The rocks are falling again. Last week a minor rockslide caused all lanes of Highway 140 to be closed. That is the road between Mariposa and the Arch Rock entrance to Yosemite. There was no damage, but the rains this year are loosening up the soil. The fall happened about a mile from the Yosemite View Lodge. Anotgher 10 miles down the road towards Briceburg lies the April 2006 gigantic Ferguson Ridge. Wear a helmet!
