Late this afternoon a thunderstorm rolled into the area and instead of clearing the air it brought with it a tremendous amount of smoke from the Ely/Isabella area wildfires. This photo shows how really thick it was, obscuring the Sawtooth mountains. It actually set off the fog horns on the lighthouse and boats. I can now identify a little more closely with what folks experience in other areas, like Texas, Arizona and New Mexico, when wind brings smoke to distant places. It actually makes it hard to breathe and irritates your eyes. Lucky for us it was not a fire in the immediate area as it is so dry. Soon the wind shifted slightly and we were able to get a fresher bit of air.
