Yosemite slide

2006-06-02 20:12:07.62299+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

Jeff alerted me to the news that there's a monster rock slide blocking route 140 into Yosemite. I've found one picture of it, and it's something to be aware of if you were hoping to get into the park from the south side, or if you're planning anything in the Mariposa region that requires uninterrupted power, 'cause it looks like it may take out a major transmission line there.

We were in Mariposa last weekend. The local papers claimed that 140 would be open by the June 1. Oops.

If you find yourself in Mariposa, there's an excellent small museum from the gold mining era, with letters home from miners who came to California to strike it rich, and some info about Sutter and Fremont, who've lent their names to so many things in the state.
