Due to increased fire activity in the areas adjacent to and on Yosemite National Park, park administrators and fire managers have made the decision to extend the current park closures indefinitely.
Fire managers and firefighters are still taking on the fires but there are more than 12 areas of the park being closed.
This makes my heart so sad because it's a goal of mine and my husbands to go to at least one National Park (or more) every year. The parts of the park that are closed indefintely are some of the most popular in the parking.
Maybe the closings will allow the area to recover and soon it will be open again!
