    Fires in the West

    Check the status of fires in the West before hitting the road.

    Coyote Chris is on his way to the Osh Kosh (WI) EAA Event and asked me to post that there is a fire close to Miles City, MT. With a quick check, I noticed a fire close to Yellowstone East Entrance as well. Fire problems are affecting roads in Canada as well.

    Just saying that it may be prudent to check your route for fire operations/smoke before you go.

    Be safe and enjoy!

    I saw a lot of aircraft in the distance dropping fire retardant on my way up from NatSTOC to ND, then west to WA, then south to San Jose, CA where I am visiting my brother.

    Just got back from Alaska and we rode in a smokey haze all the way from Whitehorse thru Glacier and Yellowstone and across Wyoming. Also many road closures and detours in Canada.

    The skies here are grey, and not from rain. Besides the heat records we should shatter tomorrow, we have an air quality warning too. Winds are coming from the north, and look at the fires in British Columbia.
