Photo taken August 15.  It was quite smoky going up and coming down, but at the lookout, we were above the smoke.  PS/ I made it on a big bike (Triuimph Tiger 800 w/o knobbies).

 I also made it up on my 800XC. However on the way down, on the easy section, I crashed and hit my lip on my windshield (face sheild was up) and split my upper lip. Had to ride back two hours to Salmon to the emergency room to have the lip stitched back together!
