Nothing that impacts Hwy. 101 into Crescent City. Here's a map of current fires, just zoom in on Crescent City. http://www.calfire.ca.gov/general/firemaps

As of now, no. It's quite rare to have forest fires right at the coast, since the summer weather is much cooler (and more moist) than inland.

You do know the Japanese tried to start wild fires on our west coast, but made the mistake of dropping the fire starters on the redwood forest near Crescent City. Thirty minutes inland can be very dry and there are sometimes fires in those mountains, but the wind blows off the ocean and keeps everything clear. The cleanest air in the nation is in Trinidad.

Yes, Trinidad's air is certainly clean. So is the air along the Oregon and Washington coasts . . . and *many* other places throughout the USA. The American Lung Association has online lists of the "cleanest" air in America even though they don't mention Trinidad :-)

Glad you had great weather, Collesce B!

Hi mwhitney92017

This is what travelingrunner was talking about.

As half-Brit said there is lots of clean air. I think they picked Trinidad head because it has clean air and Humboldt State has a marine lab right there.

Have Fun
