33662Re: [John Muir Trail] Alternate hikes
- Jul 29 6:19 PMhmmm, I read a couple days ago in another forum that some hikers aborted a hike in the Humphreys Basin area due to heavy smoke. So unless that's from a different fire, apparently the Aspen fire smoke is also heading south-easterly too.
Maybe wind conditions have changed since then?

My alternate plan is:
if the smoke is too heavy from RM, I will abort at RM, just get back to Mammoth lakes, take bus to Bishop and start the SB hike from there. Looks like all the smoke is between RM & VVR/MTR.
