The worst of the Rim Fire has been declared over, and firefighters are heading home. Slowly, the national and international attention that the fourth-largest wildfire in California history attracted will dissipate, too.

We visited the area the burn torched, the approach to Yosemite National Park from the west along Highway 120 -- which is one of the state's most-photographed and most-visited areas, attracting people from all over the world every summer on their American pilgrimages -- on Tuesday. Here's a little of what we saw.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
