Fire near Yosemite
(7/18/17) – There’s a fire burning north of the town of Mariposa just west of Yosemite National Park. Although not a direct threat to Yosemite, there is talk of evacuating Mariposa thus interfering with lodging plans you may have in that community. Each summer there are wildfires in and around Yosemite that will throw a monkey-wrench in your plans, so patience and flexibility are paramount when making your travel plans.
