First, the view of the valley smoke that befuddled me, and is discussed in the previous post. It sure looked like clouds this morning, but as soon as I descended down into it, I smelled campfire and knew I was in error. Turns out it was smoke from a major arson fire near 500 South and 200 East.
A bit later. A good example that no matter where you are in the Salt Lake Valley today, you're only a few hundred meters (vertically) from clean, pristine air.
Valley cold pools can be found just about everywhere over northern Utah right now. If there's emissions, there's pollution. The smog below is in the Heber Valley.
Just about anyone who has skied in Little Cottonwood knows this view. Unfortunately, it is common in the wintertime.
And, this afternoon back in the Avenues. Ick.
On the positive side, air quality remains in the moderate category so far.
