Elk hunters passed by camp in the early morning. Climbed 3 moreiles up the Divide trail to the shoulder of My Adams to return to the PCT north of the fire. Lots of views of Adams but between the sun and the one it's just a ghost view of the mountain. Lots of nice alpine meadows and wildflowers. Passed Chipmunk and Toad - how do people lee passing me? Does anyone hike all the trail? Lava Rock Springs was very nice. Climbed to the top of the lava Rockpile for what looked like a perfect view of Adams if not for the smoke.
In the afternoon I had some great, yet smokey, views of the surrounding mountains. A beautiful place if not for the smoke.
