    We camped in Tioga Pass area during September of last year, a day or two after it started. It was a week or two later we were hiking Clouds Rest and was amazed it was still burning, and knew at that point it was going to really change that region for a while. On the bright side, they got it out, it could have gotten much worse. The week after we went to Clouds Rest from Tenaya Lake, that area got burned too.
    We need some rain and snow or these stories will become common throughout the trail area.
    Water could be tough to come by in some regions of Sierra by early summer…….hope there is truth to the May flowers and April showers!

    We camped at Little Yosemite as the fire began and as we watered-up before dawn we could smell the smoke drifting down the river. It was not until later as we climbed the ridge did we see the actual fire. All the hikers behind us we prevented from crossing and continuing the hike. We were lucky but the smoke stayed with us for a couple of days. Thanks for showing the burn line I have been curious since last year.
