Walking along South Lake this morning we could not see any peaks. I joked it was one day the boats on the lake that normally look goofy sporting a radar might just be useful. I feel bad for anyone that is here vacationing for the first time.
Pretty good breeze this evening cleared a lot out, from our perch on the east ridgeline we could see the sunset across the lake going down behind the western ridges. Still hazy, but much better.
