The the sky cleared from the forest fire smoke that has been choking and depositing ash us. Two fires are on the other side of the river one that is over 3000 hectares big and growing. The hot dry weather and lightning has been causing many fires across B.C. The night brought relief to my airways and gave some great colour in the sky and Liard River.
Ash from the forest fire on my car hood.
Highway 37 that connects the Alaska Highway and the Yukon to Highway 16 and central B.C. is still closed. I know there are some people invited to the wedding I am shooting today stuck on the other side of the highway closure. I hope the wind will cooperate and clear a little for the wedding.
