Note to Self: Avoid the West during Fire Season

The last time we saw blue sky was August 31 on our boat ride up the Clark Fork river (see Fire, Water, and Eagles).

Smoke from the many Western wild fires have been “hazing” our views . . . as well as making it difficult to breathe at times.

When we were in Saint Regis near Thompson Falls, the smoke was as thick as fog and we could “taste” it. Ugh.

We figured by the time we got into Idaho that the smoke would be gone. Think again. It looks like we’ll be near Las Vegas before the air is clear again.

    Yuk!!! Get outta Dodge.. or Idaho. Hope you are soon in better air quality. The numbers for Spokane and Thompson Falls are UNREAL. Mary H.
