Any issues with the fires?

Can't believe you said that out loud.

Cool.  I flew home from San Jose last Wednesday and there must have been 40 fires between Northern California and Portland.

Prepping for snow?
It's white up there right now.
I know you hate floorless, but a floorless with a stove might save your comfort up there.
If you need/want, you can borrow my megatarp with titanium stove...

Thanks for the offer, but I'm going to use my own stuff. I'm good with a little less comfort. I have the floorless option as well but no stove. It's in the works though.
Looks like some warm weather coming in after this snap. Only a couple inches of snow predicted then upper 30's at night and mid to upper 50's during the day early next week. I got a picture of the snow in the rocks.. it's pretty amazingly beautiful. It's not my photo to share otherwise I'd post it up.

Roger that.
But if you get in a pinch, let me know, you're more than welcome, even just the stove.
It is looking amazing up there. Got a few pictures just before the front moved in with clear blue sky.
Good luck!
