      I just flew in from back east and got a good look.

      The Sawtooth valley, Sawtooths, and White Clouds didn't look bad. But the smoke plumes from the Halstead looked a lot closer to Stanley than I expected.
      We flew over the southern end, so looking out the right (north) window could see Alturas, Petit, and even Redfish Lake. WE could se all the higher peaks pretty clearly. Northern White Clouds all looked pretty clear: Castle, Caulkens, etc.

      Perhaps a bigger issue is the fire right near the summit of Steel Mtn. With the right conditions, the smoke from the Trinities fire is lined up pretty well to engulf the Sawtooths.

      All depends on what the wind does, I suppose (and that is why the web cam looks so discouraging in the AM with the smoke settling into the bottom of the valleys).
