Motor Home Fire El Portal

Half Dome – Yosemite Musing  

At 12:30 yesterday a motor home caught fire on Hwy 140 Southwest of the Cedar Lodge. Now over 1,000 acres burned, threatening Yosemite West and other areas. 140 closed between Ferguson Ridge rock fall and El Portal.  Travel must be via 120.  I am driving home now from the park…photos and more later today.
