Merced River Saga Continues

Last month a rock slide closed the hiway from Mariposa into Yosemite Valley. (A good central source for news on this is Yosemite Blog, where there are links to numerous related stories.)

Although it wasn’t first reported this way, it now appears that this is a major slide. It has not stopped, the road is completely covered, and material threatens to slide into the Merced river itself. Recent reports indicate that the closure of this road is now likely to last all the way through the summer.
