Expanding Yosemite by 1600 Acres

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

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.

Exactly where is this? All I could get from the publicity was "western boundary." Foresta area?

Here's a story from last week in the SF Chronicle with a map:

Also, Tom Stienstra's column from today's print edition discusses it. That's not online yet.

I wonder how this will affect the property owners of Yosemite West. There is (was) a moritorium on building because of the sewer system capacity. Looks like the area downstream will now be parkland which will probably not bode will for the property owners.
