    Here are some map links I found informative to see locations and scale of the fires in the northwest.
    The size of the Carleton Complex is apparent in these maps.

    locally, smoke seen north of the tricities, and obscuring views of Rattlesnake Mountain a couple of evenings ago, must have been from the brush fires in the Saddle Mountains on the west side of Sentinal Gap. (south of I-90, west of the Columbia River, SW of Vantage)

    This hot weather plus lightening strikes sure makes for edgy people.

    Thanks, I've been very curious about this. At this point we plan to camp at Lincoln Rock State Park on Tuesday, but that is looking like an interesting choice at this point.

    This one is interesting if you are interested in the smoke plumes. http://www.lar.wsu.edu/airpact/gmap/ap4.html

    Just select "Latest fires" under the Misc overlays menu, then" PM2.5" under the Species animations menu.

    We have 'our share' of big fires going on the California/Oregon Boarder. Only good thing is we got .37 inches of rain this morning. Bad thing is the suns out and the storm clouds are building up again over the Cascade Mountains.

    fire season is upon us again.

    The range 12 fire that started east of yakima has extended its reach to the east side of Rattlesnake mountain overlooking the tricities.

    Cooler weather, and light winds today, but windy forecast for tomorrow.

    According to this link/data, the air we're breathing here in southwest Montana is cleaner than Puget Sound... which has no current smoke from fires and we do. Heard most of ours is from the Roaring Lion fire near Hamilton.
