Hetch hetchy in july?
June 27, 2015 09:52AM
Hey folks,

Probably not a wise idea but I was trying to get out of the house July 4th weekend and was considering doing emigrant or Rancheria falls. How are the mosquitos this time around? Dry year so hoping it's not too bad. Was in the valley in April and they were starting to come out in full force.

Thanks!
Kevin

Mid-June I car-camped at Wawona then backpacked to Ostrander. Lots of mosquitoes in the evening at both Wawona and Ostrander, morning was fine at Wawona but buggy at Ostrander (I hate having to put on DEET before finishing breakfast, but had to do so). Mid-day was fine.

I'm guessing the thunderstorms in May and early June provided enough moisture to bring the bugs out, then that mid-June weekend was warm, so...

Upper air flow is from the southeast now, bring more T-storms...
