The smoke has been pretty bad in the lowlands here in Washington. I took picture off the coast the other day and couldn't see past the tiny island a quarter mile away. Typically I can see across The Sound and see the Olympics on any given day.

Wear a mask and socially distance yourself from wild fires atleast 6 feet.
