The Governator Wants to Close State Parks

… but the odds are it will just turn out to be a bunch of political posturing in the end.

Yosemite National Park is Falling Apart. Really.

Seen in the West Coast Imaging Blog:

Continuing rockfall activity at Middle Brother From the Yosemite Daily Report:

Due to continuing rockfalls from Middle Brother, Northside Drive between Camp 4 and El Capitan crossover in Yosemite Valley remains closed. Please be aware that this closure includes both vehicular and pedestrian traffic. The area was closed following a rockfall on December 18, 2007 that sent one large boulder and several smaller rock fragments onto the road. – Rich Seiling

And…

minor collapse in the pedestrian tunnel at Hetch Hetchy From the Yosemite Daily Report:

Due to a minor collapse in the pedestrian tunnel at Hetch Hetchy, the trail to Wapama and Tueealala Falls is inaccessible at this time. NPS and City of San Francisco staff will be evaluating the situation on Monday. – Rich Seiling

And if that’s not enough…

… a tree fell on Edie’s car.
