Now much haze will there be in Yellowstone?

Fires in Utah, Wyoming, Colorado, Montana. Most will burn for months. Any predictions or current experience on how much smoky haze I should expect at Yellowstone and Grand Teton in the last week of July / 1st week of August? No falls view? Taste of smoke on the air? Pray for rain?

There are numerous variables to consider when, and if, trying to intelligently answer this question like wind, temperature, pressure, advancement of the fire, success of curtailment, elevation of the observer, Ect.

IMHO, praying (talking to yourself), will not help except possibly in the mind of the person doing the praying.

Generally the winds, at least in the upper atmosphere, are from west to east. Beings the current fires are basically south of Yellowstone I'd say you'd be safe in going. In fact, I'm taking my own advise and going there in September after the summer rush.

Just got home 3 days ago from Emigrant area 30mi. North of Yellowstone, after an 18 day stay and saw no problems there and on the way home except for a little smoke haze from the fire South of Douglas, WY. Came home via I80 to MO. Spent a few days in Yellowstone and a couple days in Beartooths and Cody via toad and also saw no problems. Had westerly and north winds, but heat was coming when we left.
As to what it will be like in a month as you asked...HmmmMm let me look into the crystal windshield...
Have a safe and wonderful trip,

Yellowstone is all about smell (sulfur) and haze (steam) from its features!

In order for you NOT to see Yellowstone falls, the fire would have to be in Ystone. You should be fine.

We see the smoke all the way up here in Canada. Not at the moment, but it travels!

Just left YNP & Teton latter part of June, and there was no problem with smoke or haze. Traveled thru north east gate to west gate, east gate to Cody where we camped. and exited the south gate to Teton. Weather was fine. Go see the sites.

I was up in Evanston recently (left Sunday AM) and the only haze I saw was to the south.

We were there just a couple weeks ago and it was not an issue. We drove through some on our trip out, but in the week we were there we did not experience and smoke related issues.
