Distant forest fires are sending smoke all the down here, giving the views a persistent hazy look. The smoke doesn’t bother us with regard to breathing, but Clint’s eyes do seem to be sensitive to it.

We woke up to the sound of large-scale timber operations. They were still a ways away, but close enough that we could easily see what they were doing. They started super early, probably to leverage the cooler temps.

Another momma deer and it’s two babies were on the trail in front of us.
