Idaho on fire!

We left Brigham City and headed in Idaho. As we moved up toward Hagerman, we noticed a good deal of fire damage along the road but did not take particular notice. As we pulled into High Adventure Tours RV Park, we noticed some smoke off to the north.

After setting up and getting the TV tuned to the local channels, we found a news show and the first thing we heard was” Idaho on fire! “Apparently, Idaho has the most wild fires of any state at the moment, with over 500 square miles involved. We quickly learned that they are raging just to our south and west. One of the national sites we are here to visit is reported closed due to the fire. Our route up to Arco is also reported closed at certain times due to smoke.

So we are not sure how long we will be here or where we will be able to go when we leave or are pushed out by the fires.

Aaaaahhh- the adventures of the road.

We know what you mean, B.C. has been burning up all summer but, thankfully, it's beginning to get a little better. Stay safe out there.
