Anyone over on the East Side care to comment on the conditions with the fire going on in Yosemite? I was up on Tuolumne with Aspen Fire going and it wasn't too bad, but that was weeks ago before the bigger fire broke out. How's it affecting from Bishop down to Lone Pine?
On a side note... anyone been up the road to get to the Split Mtn. trailhead? Is it as bad as it ever was?
I hiked over Cottonwood Pass on Saturday and the smoke from the Fish Fire was pretty bad around the Siberian Outpost area - one hiker we met aborted their hike due to the smoke. But, on Sunday, on the way back from Rock Creek, the Siberian Outpost area was not bad at all. However, back in Horseshoe Meadows, the smoke was definitely thicker than the day before. I think it all depends on the winds.
