We hiked the Siyeh Pass trail today. Going up there was occasionally clear sky and sunshine overhead but the horizons were always hazy. On the St. May Lake side there was always haze. The mountains across St. Mary Lake were just shadows in the haze. I did notice the smokey smell that has occurred a few times.

The pleasant aspect - with all the people in the park I only saw 10 other people from Siyeh Pass to Sunrift Gorge. There were about 25 others from Siyeh Bend to Siyeh Pass.

One other note - the Siyeh Pass trail from Siyeh Bend to the Piegan Pass junction received rain yesterday. The trail was actually wet in places, not muddy but the first people through this morning left boot prints in the wet soil. And water had run off the trail in the cutouts. So not a lot of rain but enough to show up on the trail.

One reason I'm not too optimistic about the smoke going away in the next few weeks.
NW Montana's prevailing wind this time of year is from the SW.
The big fires in CA, WA ID, and OR all located directly to our SouthWest :( :(
