Never in my 33 years of living in California, Idaho, and Oregon have I ever seen so much smoke. From Boise, Idaho to Salem, Oregon the smoke was so thick that you couldn’t see any foot hills, and could barely see across the Columbia River to the other side of the Gorge.
We didn’t see any mountains, in the above photo strait ahead is Mt. Hood. Can you see it? Me neither. 474 miles later and we have seen absolutely no blue skys.
