LA Times says 140 Open into Yosemite, sort of

Jul 30, 2008 by

For the latest in official Telegraph Fire information, please check here.  It's Yosemite's Web site

According to the LA Times, highway 140 in California is intermittently open depending on how the Telegraph Fire is progressing.  This report I found says the fire is 15 percent contained and has burned more than 29,000 acres.  Yikes. 

The local TV station, 30HD, has up-to-date information that's one to two days old here

The San Fran Chron has information here.

I noted that one comment said some of this information was incorrect on KSEE

As of 7:30 a.m. CST, this is all the up-to-date information I can find. 

Hang in there CA.  We're pulling for you. 

Here is an AP story on how the fire is curtailing the tourist industry along 140 after reopening from the '06 rock slide.   If you will  note, that point was made here  yesterday.

The scenery along 140 to me is the best way into Yosemite, though as much as we've been staying at The Logger's Retreat, we've grown partial to just landing in Fresno and driving up 41 straight into the south end of the park.   All this makes me sad, however.  The area that's burning is so beautiful.
