Due to the Ferguson fire and all of the roads/entry ways into Yosemite being closed, the 10 hour hike through the park was cancelled. I was obviously disappointed, as was the YFA team. They could not have been more forthcoming with the fire updates leading...More

We were lucky to escape the fire by a few days - I would try your best to get to Yosemite - it’s breathtaking - just keep an eye out for fires - I think the one which recently affected will be long gone

Why not do it yourself? IF the weather and moon phase is right, even the valley floor is fine. There are stargazing apps on the phone.
