Much easier when you know where the route departs from: the rocks with the alcove just after the spring. Still kind of hot, but tolerable. However, my expectation is that mid-week during Minnesota White Dove season this remains less busy than the Siphon Draw and so while I am not likely to sudden become Mr 5057, I might come back and do this more frequently in winter months instead of 5024. Certainly more than every 3 years.

The burn doesn't look bad, opened up a lot of the brush. I rather like it. The range does look rather drab and bare though. Visibility and air quality were definitely better than Saturday or yesterday, but not great. Maybe I will return here, or do part of the ridgeline in winter once clear air returns after someone puts out that never ending fire in California. I did see a new smoke plume east of Superior. Started around 1, maybe, and it was putting up nice healthy brown plume by 4 PM. Yay!
