Just returned from Tuolumne on Monday evening...solo rider on the last YARTS bus, Tuolumne Meadows - Mammoth.

Scuttlebutt in the Meadows had a "supervisors" meeting scheduled Monday or Tuesday to discuss early permanent closing of 120 - Crane Flat to White Wolf, essentially all services on 120 west of the fire - HSC, stables, gas station - for the season.
The TM store - scheduled to close on the 15th - considering tentatively closing the end of this weekend...hours now 9 - 5.
In September,YARTS bus scheduled for weekends only - (as cannot go to the Valley as fire limits route from Mammoth to Tuolumne), may also be curtailed if 120 closed until next season. A lot of hikers could be stranded in TM.
Did not hear what the meeting concluded.
