Sound travels ~ 750 mph or so...Count the time between flash and sound...
Roughly, 5 seconds = 1 mile away
Anything close to 10 seconds...maybe time to stop fishing?

I emailed the visitor center my questions about gate and parking specifics. If they get back to me with any good nuggets of info I'll post them here, hopefully it will help anyone making this trip in the future for the first time. Thanks again to all those who replied ! This is an awesome website and community! If weather and smoke permits the trip I'll have a trip report posted in early October. Thanks again HST

Think about a plan B if the smoke/weather doesn't cooperate for your first pick.
