Fire season has now begun in the park. If I discerned the radio traffic going back and forth on the park’s Fire Ops channel and the NRCC’s regional air channel, there’s a new fire near the northern border of the park. I believe it’s been dubbed the Blacktail Fire. At initial report, it was at 1/4 acre in grass and was sporadically torching trees. They’re gonna send a smokejumper team in shortly to take a look at it.They’ve turned the Washburn webcam normally pointed into Hayden Valley in that direction.Some of this info may be subject to change once I get more information.
