yeah, we were up there last week and the approaches felt like smoking a pack of cigarettes. there were a few moments when the smoke was thick enough that i was wondering just how close the fires were...

Be thankful you don't live in Wenatchee, where it's been at an Unhealthy level for the past week or so.

Love how the smoke creates its own warmify effect on this photo.

We got to the base of NEWS, out of breath and questioning whether we should go on or not! I lost half my voice on the approach from all the smoke. It definitely made the climbing harder for me. I found myself taking rests everywhere I could. I decided no more alpine routes for me until the smoke clears. Definitely had a great time non the less :)
