Yosemite bans low elevation fires

Effective Tuesday, July 15 Yosemite began severe fire restrictions.

The fire order bans the use of campfires in wilderness below 6,000 feet in elevation.  However, campfires in designated campgrounds and picnic areas will still be allowed.

The RIM fire last Auguast was the worst in Park History and only a bit by Hetch hetchy got hit. The flora is dry as tinder and we cannot afford another one. Water is at drought level and it will be hard to extinguish fires.

This is fire season. May I suggest you delete even campfies in campgrounds. Play the DVD of “A Christmas Yule Log.”
