Title: fires are here
Post by: Little Hardrock on June 24, 2016, 01:18:06 PM
for those of you traveling along 395 in the lee vining area... it is closed in both directions due to a fire...

the fires seem to be here early this year to me....could be in for another long summer...

(me, i am dealing with rail strikes in the UK...  another route of travel closed in places :)
