Multiple fires are still burning in California - including some that are no doubt smoking up our home at the lake - and this is what it looks like from our hiking hill above town looking south into the southern Egan Range. It's been variably hazy for a couple weeks now, including the entire time our visitors from Alaska were here. Sometimes you couldn't see across the 8-mile-wide valley to the Schell Creek Range. We were fortunate that the days we spent at Wheeler Peak were clear, with nice thin air, and relatively less haze than many other recent days.
