The forecast for clearing air did not prove true. Was very smoky (actually worse) on Saturday and the webcams show plenty of smoke on Sunday morning.

We are a 100% over here on Sunday than it has been for the last week, light breeze in the mid 70's today and no smoke visible from the house here.

I just came back from trying to get up on Cataract Mt.
I got a couple hundred yards up into the talus and boulders just under the ridge line....
But the WIND was just too much for me. Stumbling around in a boulder/talus field in wind like that is a bad idea...imo.
The wind nearly knocked me off balance a number of times, but made my eyes water badly too---the tears effectively almost blinding me.

Point is the weather was gorgeous in the Piegan, Pollock, Siyeh, Matahpi, GTTS Mt area.
Everyone I met on the trail talked about bow beautiful it was today on the Piegan Pass trail.
Sunny, blue skies, some nice clouds, the air wasn't "perfect" but very nice,. I'll post pics later.

The wind up on these ridge tops was fierce from the time I arrived at Siyeh Bend around 6:30AM and still blowing hard when I left around 1:30PM.
The fire fighters will have a hard time of it until this wind dies down.

Here's video of when/where I turned around from trying to get up on Cataract Mt.
Most of the audio is blown away by the wind.

Runs about 1 minute

Here's what Piegan looked like about 8:45 this morning.

Around 9:00AM. Not perfect but beats the smokey haze on the West side.

Still sunny and blue skies at 12:45PM when I got back down to Siyeh bend.
