North Peak and behind it Mount Conness

I felt real lucky to even get this shot – the wind switched direction within minutes of me getting to Saddlebag Lake the afternoon before, and wildfire smoke reduced the vis to about 1/2 mile. Skies cleared out before dawn next morning, and stayed that way for couple hours after sunrise, so I got some good pics. By noon the air quality went to shit again and you practically needed a flashlight to see – people wandering around out there like ghosts.
