Severity of the smoke in the Ashland area has varied widely over the past few weeks depending on wind conditions. At its worst it is difficult to see more than four city blocks at a time, and at its best we’ve enjoyed clear blue skies. This has been as true for the summit of Mt Ashland as ot has for the City itself.
The good news is that lion’s share southern Oregon wildfires have stayed in the Roseburg/Douglas County area far from the Trail itself, although lightning is forecast for the next 2 days (8/10 and 8/11).
