Fires!

We are hearing about all the fires in Idaho Oregon and Washington and were wondering about the Hells Canyon/Joseph/Baker City area. We are leaving Tuesday the 21st of August!

Thanks so much!

A new fire broke out yesterday in the Waldo Lake area, fires continue in the Oakridge region and the governor has declared a state of emergency throughout Oregon. With high temps and thunder/lightning storms over the Cascades, it's hard to predict where the next fires will be. Although I haven't seen anything about fires in the area where you're headed, you might find yourself going through areas with smoke from fires and possible detours due to fire situations.

Keep an eye on these websites for the latest fire info and on www.tripcheck.com for road and weather conditions and forecasts.

In the meantime, continue looking forward to a great trip.
