No smoke in the air that we could see or smell along the trail, but there was smoke between us and Mt Shasta. Looking southwest in the vicinity of Meridien overlook on FS 20, the smoke was quite thick in the direction of the Salmon River fires.
Group photo was taken at the base of the spur trail to the top of Siskiyou Peak, since it was already 11 am, and certain people decided it was time for luch. The rest of us gamely struggled on to the summit before eating. Diane made it to the top despite the serious lip injury she suffered when attacked by a wasp on Wednesday's Rogue River raft trip.
