Yosemite Valley evacuating

Postby balzaccom » Fri Aug 03, 2018 11:42 am

This from a post on Yosemite News and Discussion group by someone who is very familiar with the park and its staff:

"Convoys are meeting at El Cap Meadow at 1100am and 1200pm for Wawona exit. May also exit via Crane Flat to Tioga Pass only (this route is dependent on fire behavior and could close at any moment). Must leave the valley by 1200pm today."

Very sad news.

Didn't they do that a week and a half ago, or is this now including even staff who were still there?

Yes--this is not for tourists. This is for all non-essential staff.
