Just wondering if anyone knows the current situation in Leavenworth? Some friends and i want to go in about 2 weeks, but not sure if that will be advisable or even allowed given the large wild fires in the area. If you have info it's appreciated!

If you're just climbing at the crags; everything is accessible. If you're backpacking or hiking; then there are closures that could limit your plan. (Check the Wenatchee N.F. website)
These fires are going to smoke until it rains. But the worst smoke was usually downvalley toward Wenatchee. But because of the near constant inversion there is a haze of general smoke over the whole east side of the Cascades.
