I just talked with someone from the Kootenay Visitor Centre. She said that the fire is about 50 hectares burning on the north side of the Numa Creek Drainage. Apparently today Parks is trying to create a firebreak near an avalanche path to help stop the fire from spreading.
Currently the Rockwall Trail is closed from Numa Pass to Tumbling Pass... Probably because they don't want people to get stuck at Numa Creek if the fire goes west.
I've got a couple nights this weekend at Floe Lake, which is still open to Numa Pass. Hopefully the smoke isn't too bad.
Anyone have any suggestions for a day scramble near Floe Lake?
