Please report back here if you know of any fires or encounter smoky conditions during a recent trip to the Sierra.

The CAL FIRE map below displays general locations of major fires burning in the High Sierra Nevada and throughout the state of California. Fire locations are approximate.

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.

And so it begins! Let's hope it doesn't get as smoky as the last two summers.

Jordan fire is burning just south of, and up hill from the hot springs. They're landing the attack team in the meadow across the creek from the buildings.

Thanks Eric for the new links. Rather irritating how many government websites tend to continually change every year or three. Let's hope the recent two decade's August wildfire plague doesn't rise up again.
