Super Smoky British Columbia

Under ordinary circumstances, western British Columbia is one of the most spectacular places on the planet, but currently it is shrouded in a haze of wildfire smoke.

We got a first-hand view on our flight from Ketchikan to Seattle today.  This is remarkably deep, thick smoke given the height of those peaks.

Seattle has had some relief, as might be inferred from the satellite image above, but we could spot neither Mt. Baker or Glacier Peak and only got a slight glimpse of Mt. Rainier.

Gonna miss the clear air of Alaska!
