As you have most likely noticed, we have been experiencing quite a bit of “drift smoke.” There is a faint smell of smoke and often a light haze visible here in the canyon, particularly in the mornings and evenings. This drift smoke is coming from active fires to our south and west that are quite a distance away and will most likely be noticeable for many days to come. As always, if you see smoke that you feel is more than a light haze (especially a distinguishable source of smoke), notice a heavy smell of smoke, or for any other reason are concerned that there may be a wildland fire in our area you may call 911 to have your Fire Department respond and investigate.
