We are en route to Sante Fe, NM early next week and are very concerned about the spread of the Arizona wildfires. Does anyone have information regarding the air quality currently in Santa Fe? We're also wondering if a lot of the national parks might be closed. Would appreciate any information

Kelsey,

You will probably get better information if you contact Santa Fe and the National Park Service directly with your questions. Any response you get here its likely to be second-hand, hearsay, or opinion rather than fact. Also, you don't say where you are coming from - north, south, east, or west of Santa Fe? That could make a difference as to whether or not the AZ fires will effect your travel.

Good luck.

Thanks for your reply! We will heading to Sante Fe from Amarillo. I have been checking National Park websites but not a lot of updates posted yet. I think I'll have to resort to calling ;^). We have two younger children with us and are specifically concerned about the smoke/dust in the air- if we have to stay inside the camper the whole 5 days, we'd be better off saving Santa Fe for a later trip...

From what we see on TV news I would reroute and not go into this place. This fire is super in size and running wild yet. In two more weeks it may not be out per news service. Moved in to AZ and Mexico now. You could visit in a different time frame.

Huge AZ wildfire spreads, health conditions worsen
AP

By BRIAN SKOLOFF, Associated Press 1 hr 5 mins ago

SPRINGERVILLE, Ariz. New Mexico officials are warning residents of potentially hazardous air quality over the weekend from throat-burning smoke spewing from a gigantic wildfire in eastern Arizona that has been blazing for several weeks.

The 672-square-mile fire jumped the state line late Friday as firefighters moved to counter spot fires sprouting up in New Mexico and lighting their own fires to beat it back.

Health officials warned residents as far away as Albuquerque and Santa Fe about potential respiratory hazards, noting sensitive groups such as those with asthma, lung or heart disease, children, pregnant women and seniors should take extra precautions.
