Yo… Solid weather continues to mark the mid-season for climbing and unfortunately so does solid smoke from burn piles that the NPS is getting burned before the cold, wet winter sets in. At first, they did the piles to the east of the ElCap Bridge and the prevailing west winds, that come in late morning, blew all the smoke east into the east end of the Valley. That was fine with me because it left the Cap clear of smoke for the rest of the day! However, yesterday they started on the piles to the west of the ECB and all that choaking, nasty smoke is now blocking the view of the Cap. I took Saturday off because I knew that shooting was not going to be worthwhile, and I have a family matter that is commanding my attention and may lead to me leaving in the very near future.
Today’s ElCap Report…Written just for you…. Unique in all the World!
