Believe it or not, it made its way to PA.  It's a hazy sunshine today as a result of the smoke from the fires. Stay safe out there!

went on a long-planned trip to the Mt Baker area this week and was absolutely shocked to get nearly smokeless weather and even blue skies on a hike to Lake Ann yesterday! Everything to the south was hazy but the north was very clear. Went back today hoping to do more hiking and the smoke was back with a vengeance - couldn't even see Baker or Shuksan from Artist's Point

Lake Ann looking out to some hazy mountains

Yesterday at 4pm

Exact same spot, today at 10am

My buddy Rick is a heavy smoker. Normally he steps outside to smoke but recently he has started smoking indoors as a means to avoid the poor air quality outside.

Some folks are driving a thousand miles to get closer to get right next a shovel handle length from the smoke. Then they’re going to quarantine for 14 days away from their families once the cross the border on the way home.
