Smoke In The Air

There are several wildfires on the eastern slops of the Cascades, and a couple in the mountains themselves.  One, called the Cascade creek fire, on the south slopes of Mt Adams, is about 50 miles away from here in Morton.  But the smoke is still filling the valley here.  This valley is only about 10 miles long at most, but you cant see the hills on either end from here in the middle because of the smoke.

It gives everything an eerie tint to it, and even has turned the sun red.  Not a great day to go riding, but with the way it is getting cold at night, I don't think there are going to be a lot of great riding days left.  So will be getting into the ride every chance I can mindset.  At least it is only smoke, and not thick clouds filling the valley.

Catch you on the road sometime...
