  • Mt. Shasta area - Eiler Fire

    We will be moving from Brookings, OR to Weed, CA near Mt. Shasta next Thursday and wondering about smoke in the area from the Eiler Fire.

    Anyone in the vicinity?

    We camped about 25 miles NE of Marysville last week, about 35 - 40 miles south of the fire, and didn't notice any smoke there. The
    good news is that the fire is about 98% contained with things finally getting back to normal. Of course, if the winds were blowing to the west and north, our location wouldn't have been affected by smoke. This doesn't answer your question but might give some insight.

          We're camped at TTN Snowflower in the Sierra, 65 miles NE of Sacramento.

          Since we've been here, two wildfires have started. One 20 miles SW and the other about 50 miles due south of us. The latter has more potential for destruction as it is in a more populated area. We awaken each morning to a smoky campground but by the afternoon the smoke has cleared away.

          This fire season has to be one of the worst in California's history. To the credit of the state's fire fighting resource managers, they are very good at pooling the limited resources and placing them in critical areas very quickly.

            I used to believe that folks on the left coast would eventually realize that instituting sound, scientific forestry management (which includes controlled burns) is the only way to prevent their yearly outbreak of wild fires .... I no longer believe that it is likely that they will get the message

                Nature is sending a message with a vengance and taking care of a part of that problem. Unfortunately, Nature doesn't select which areas to spare from her wrath.

                  agree the unfortunate thing is nature is sending the message but it keeps falling on deaf ears

                    Conservationists don't even want to allow logging in fire areas after big fires to clear the way for new growth

                      Last 2 weeks we were up in the Lassen National Forest at Merrill CG on Eagle Lake about 15 miles N. of Susanville, CA. No smoke up at the CG but Susanville was getting some the day we were down there for supplies.

                      Got back to our home base in Reno yesterday and the smoke from the fires near Sac is here. Supposed to clear out in the next couple od days as a front is coming in that will change the winds more favorable instead of out of the SW and W.

                      Terrible year for wildfires in CA as someone mentioned.
