The burning forest of Yosemite National Park in California was marked by huge grey walls stretching hundreds of feet into the sky. “I’ve never seen numbers this high, and I’ve been doing this for 30 years,” Dave Conway, deputy officer for the Mariposa County Air Pollution Control District.

Breathing in such polluted area leads to heart and lung diseases, for instance, the accelerated hardening of plaque inside the walls of blood vessels.

Despite the grey walls of pollution, the park remains opened and doesn’t mind  and Yosemite’s site reads that “smoke may be heavy at times,” and to “expect poor air quality & visibility.”

This is the most terrible year for California as the fires burned 1.2 million acres of land.
