I have my Whitney permit for August 2 and the plan is to spend one night at Trail Camp, summit, back to Trail Camp and head down on August 4th. After which we plan on heading to Yosemite to do Half Dome and several others. We did this same trip a couple of years ago and it was awesome.
My question is, how severe are the fires in Yosemite? I live in Michigan and have been reading that it's quite intense out there but are these fires affecting many of the trails out there or are they just in Mariposa. I know they can spread wherever but was hoping that someone could give me some info that's possibly a bit more specific than what I'm reading online.
Anything will help.
As always, thanks!
