We're considering going backpacking in the Carson Iceberg Wilderness, possible enter at the Highland Lakes area, but we're concerned about smoke from the fire.
Anyone know how bad the smoke is from the rim fire?
Really bad or barely noticable?
One of the guys that's going was in Yosemite last weekend and said it was quite acrid and on bad days you couldn't see more than a thousand feet and ash was falling everywhere.
Alternatively we've thought about Desolation, but worried that it'll be a zoo with people. Is smoke bad there?
Or any interesting trips north of Tahoe in the Eldorado NF?
