It it is hard for us to know how the air quality is down mountain so please check your local weather stations and websites for their ratings. We do see how hazy it is down in the valley and get a whiff once and a while but some areas are affected worse than others so please check your specific areas for better information.
Only 3 llama trips left until the end of season!
