    Tsali, affected by fires, or getting to it?
    Planning a Tsali trip soon, coming west. I have read that parts of 19/74 have closed. Having a hard time finding maps showing where the fires are. Mainly want to find out if Tsali has been affected, will be open, or I can actually get to it reasonably.

    Anyone over that way have some insight?

    There are quote a few fires burning in Franklin area in the Nantahala. Depending on the wind it could be pretty smoky over in Tsali.

    Try calling the USFS and ask about conditions...

    I was reading further, and this link has a 'Related Information' box with a PDF stating road closures. But even if not closed, air quality may be bad as Banjopickin noted. http://inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/article/5081/34449/

    https://www.airnow.gov/index.cfm?act...ow.local_state is a good resource for current air quality.
