Some California National Forests Have Reopened, Including Inyo National Forest (Yosemite, White Mountains, Eastern Sierra)
See prior post: Looks Like the Eastern Sierra Fall Color Season is Toast.
The good news: Inyo National Forest and certain others are now OPEN again. Certain national forests remain closed.
The air is now clear in much of the Eastern Sierra, but it could change on a dime. Areas like Lee Vinging and Bridgeport have acceptable but poor air.
I’d like to get out there ASAP, but multiple constraints make it difficult for me to get more than a block of 6 days, so at this point I will just defer to around Oct 13/14 and then go until Thanksgiving or so.
