Rim fire update and Half Dome permits

The Rim fire is now 32% contained. Look at this map closely . The entire south side of Hetch Hetchy is burned and it’s heading up the Tuolumne River. Also note the closeness  of Tioga Road. It appears Camp Mather is gone…but I’ve not read anything about. The map shows it all in red. Not  good.

Need a Half Dome permit? I checked Recreation.gov.  Look how many will be available in the 2-day mini lottery…your odds are VERY good. Go for it.
