    I was on Lafayette on Wednesday. I didn't notice any, although it was a bit hazy and maybe that was from the smoke. I've been out in WY and UT when there are fires burning, and you can actually...

    It's been more than a decade since I hiked in that area, but I can tell you one thing: It is one crowded area. On a Labor Day weekend, during this virus, I wouldn't attempt to camp anywhere near the...
