Yosemite de­tours

Los Angeles Times - - TRAVEL - — Mary For­gione

If you’re driv­ing to Yosemite Val­ley, choose your route care­fully. The pop­u­lar en­trance from Mari­posa along Cal­i­for­nia 140, which be­comes El Por­tal Road, was closed last week be­cause of a slide that sent 4,000 tons of rock rain­ing down a ledge and onto the road. The slide oc­curred about a mile east of the park en­trance, bury­ing the road un­der 15 to 20 feet of rock de­bris, block­ing the 45-mile route into the park’s val­ley. The road has no es­ti­mated re­open­ing date. Info: (209) 372-0200 (then dial 1, then 1) for any up­dates. Vis­i­tors can use Cal­i­for­nia 41/Wa­wona Road from Oakhurst to the Val­ley (50 miles) or Cal­i­for­nia120/Big Oak Flat Road from Grov­e­land (about 50 miles).
