Smoke in the Gulf Islands

Everyone that has visited the Gulf Islands during the past week has experienced a very smokey haze courtesy of wildfires burning on the British Columbia mainland and Vancouver Island. While the smoke has made for interesting sunsets like this one near Salt Spring Island, it has certainly caused issues for many of the visitors and residents that have health issues. Fortunately today has cleared up a little and with wind and possibly rain coming we may get back to a more normal situation.
