Smoke Gets in Your Eyes...

Smoke from BC forest fires dims the midday sun.

Smoke from BC wildfires turns the sky umber over Ucluelet, BC.
Smoke from forest fires turns the ocean into beer...
On our last day at Tofino, we awoke to find a strange quality to the daylight. We hiked a bit of the Wild Pacific Trail in the morning... the colour of the water was a surreal brown colour under a sky of amber.

Smoke from local wildfires obscures the hills near Port Alberni, BC...
The road to Port Alberni
thick with smoke...
On the way back across Vancouver Island, thick clouds of smoke blocked the sun and settled into the valleys between the mountain peaks. The smoke was the result of a combination of local fires and fires on the mainland that was drifting west.
