8/30/13, 5:00pm: Smoke map!

We've heard reports of smoke drifting into the northern end of Yellowstone National Park. This smoke is NOT from fires in Yellowstone but from fires elsewhere, including the Rim Fire in Yosemite National Park, Where we sit in the Lake area in Yellowstone, the skies are beautiful and air is clear.  
While fires in our region may produce visible smoke columns when actively burning, they are not the major source of the smoke haze which is covering our area.
The majority of the smoke haze is being produced by the Rim Fire in California, which is now well over 200,000 acres and is the largest fire in the nation so far this year.
