Smoke blankets Missoula

For the better part of two months, Missoula has had a blanket of smoke from several fires west of the valley including Idaho's Mustang, Powell SBW, McGuire, and the Sheep wildlife complexes. Sometimes the blanket of smoke is more of a sheet. Other times, it is a down comforter. With the recent presence of the Sawtooth fire located down the Bitterroot valley, the end of last week was a smokey one in the Missoula valley.

I flew out of Missoula for the weekend and have been able to escape the smoke...albeit temporarily. I took some pictures with the GoPro on the flight out.

The Missoula valley - filled with smoke
Cruising altitude. Never made a transition between smoke and clouds. Almost positive this is a blanket of smoke.
Somewhere over Wyoming. Smoke still fills the valleys.
Somewhat clearer skies. The smoke is behind us at this point.

We certainly had our share earlier this year. Smoke every day from almost 100 miles away in both directions. Nice photos!
