We had a wonderful time in Yosemite early in August and we dealt with some smoke from fires west of the park at that time. But a new fire in the Wawona area has taken hold and has forced the closure of Glacier Point Road for fire fighting measures.
If you are planning a Labor Day weekend around Yosemite you might need to adjust your plans. More details can be found at http://www.sierrastar.com/news/local/article169960032.html
We, Harley and Abby, are the parents of 4 boys whom we regularly drag into any and every national park we come near to. We love our parks and know that the only chance we have of keeping and maintaining this priceless resource is to give our children a love of them too.
