Areas affected by Rim fire now re-open

All areas with Yosemite National Park that were closed due to the Rim Fire have
reopened as of April 1, 2014. http://www.nps.gov/yose/planyourvisit/rimfire.htm
I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.

Have a safer backcountry experience by using the HST ReConn Form 2.0, named after Larry Conn, a HST member: http://reconn.org

For those interested in finding out more about the quantitative impacts of the Rim Fire on ecosystem services, I wanted to share this report produced by Earth Economics. My friend and classmate works at EE and contributed to the report, though he is not listed as one of the main authors. I found the research extremely useful for the project I will doing in my current course. I encourage anyone interested in learning more about how fires are changing how we valuate nature to check out this report and share it with others.
