Northside Drive、落石のためクローズ

18日にヴァレー内のNorthside Drive(北側道路:通常は西行き一方通行)のCamp4の西方で崖崩れによる落石があり、現在道路は閉鎖中とのこと。かわりにSouthside Driveが両面通行になっているようです。

Northside Drive will remain closed until further notice due to the 12/18 rockfall. This closure may be in effect through
the Christmas holiday due to the predicted winter storm.The rockfall, located west of Camp 4, was first heard at around
1600 but anecdotal reports indicate that there was continued activity into the night. The area is currently being monitored
by park staff. Southside Drive will continue to be accessible for inbound and outbound traffic. Please call 209/372-0200
for updated road conditions. (A. Freeman – 12/20/07)
