Just a Little Haze

Smoke at Dead Horse Point

Just a quick post as we pack up to leave Moab, Utah.  We’re heading for Torrey, Utah and Capitol Reef.  I don’t think that the Inn that we’re staying in has WIFI so I figured I’d post something quick.

The haze you see in this not so artistic image is smoke.  There are no fires in the immediate vicinity, however.  This is smoke from fires well to the north and west (including Nevada and California, I’m told).  Supposedly, a weather front this weekend will clear most of it out.  Anyway, not such a pristine view of Canyonlands from Dead Horse Point SP, as you can see.  You could barely make out the Colorado River below.  Well, that’s a bit of a stretch, but it was pretty damn hazy!

    Paul, I think you need to recalibrate your “haze meter” if this is “just a little haze!” 😉 That looks unhealthy to breath.

      Yes, there were some health warnings in certain areas (up near Salt Lake City, I think). But today (Sunday) it seems to be all gone.
