Anyone in Tuolumne Meadows this morning? Is it smoky there from the Detwiler Fire?
Cellphone coverage is spotty in the Tuolumne Meadowa ares and you may not get a response from someone actually there. You can check webcams for the High Country and Tuolumne Meadows here:
At the time I looked, 7:20 am PDT, Tuolumne looked clear. However, our experience there when there were fires west of Yosemite is that the smoke may blow up Tenaya Canyon into the meadows in the morning. It may dissipate later in the day (as it did one day when we hiked to Cloud's Rest) or it may persist (as it did when we wanted to hike Mt. Hoffmann and gave up on the plan).
Thank you very much. Is that web cam live though? Or is it an old picture?
That's what I thought. Thank you.
Thanks. I am trying to find out about TM specifically. My husband is on the JMT currently at Sunrise High Sierra Camp. Smoke was very thick yesterday. His route today takes him through TM so I'm trying to find out if the air quality is OK there. Have tried calling Ranger Station, Store and Cafe. No one picking up yet.
Ran into someone today that said haze was similar in Tuolumne to the valley. Also said that the east side was pretty rough, with low visibility of mono lake.
We are heading up to TM in 2 weeks. Hope conditions improve.
