How big is the Sawmill Ridge fire?  This is the first I've heard of a fire in that area.

A guy at the bow shop told me the Manastash is closed... but I don't see any closures in that area. Am I crazy? Or he?

The Cle Elum Ranger District does not show any current closures in the Manastash.

I had an interesting day up at Snoqualmie Pass today. Bumped into several hikers on the PCT going from Mexico to Canada. Man they are in good shape! Bumped into a firefighter on fire watch on Stampede Pass watching the valley. He was talking about the sawmill fire. Indian Heaven Wilderness closed FYI.

Where is the uno peak fire going to go if the winds that are supposed to clear some smoke show up? Methow or Grade Creek. The fire camp orders more resources daily.

A sizeable area in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness in Chelan County is closed due to the Jack Creek fire:https://inciweb.nwcg.gov/photos/WAOWF/2017-09-02-1357-Jack-Creek/related_files/pict20170804-082024-0.jpeg https://inciweb.nwcg.gov/photos/WAOWF/2017-09-02-1357-Jack-Creek/related_files/pict20170804-081900-0.jpeg

On a related note, anyone know where to get camo N95 masks? :)
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.

We had a lot of ash/sooty stuff dropping on us yesterday.  We live near Maple Valley.  I have never seen this here before.  Dang we need some rain.

Manashtash is open . At least as of yesterday. Been there since labor day. Some days are smokey some aren't. Depends on wind.
