|John Muir Wilderness, Inyo County, California, USA.|
The smoke from the Rim fire in Yosemite was blowing west for two days and the High Sierra cleared
out for the first time since early August. Hiking since then has been useless with all the smoke. I hiked into the John
Muir Wilderness in the Thousand Island Lake, Mt. Banner area. I hiked 23.5 miles in one day and came home very sore and
tired, but it was worth it!

This photo was take about 5 minutes after the photo above as the wind shifted and the smoke blew back in.
