This Labor Day weekend you may be hitting the road, but one destination you might not be considering is Yosemite.
The Rim Fire is burning in part of the park, and the fire is now more than 30 percent contained. Full containment is not expected until September 20th.
Despite this though much of the park is open for business. Kari Cobb, park ranger and spokesperson for Yosemite, joins the show with an update on the status of the park.
We also speak with park ranger Maggie Dowd, for an update on the other side of the park, just beyond it in the Stanislaus National Forest, where the fire has hit the hardest.
