So the smoke gets into everything, nostrils included, but makes for some interesting photographs..



I guess this just gives me one more reason to come back and ride when it's clear..



I eventually find civilization and grab lunch at Kooskia Cafe..



Then follow some squiggles to the main highway..



Still a lot of haze, and after a few miles I understand why..



It's difficult sometimes to fully appreciate the scale of these things, and the scale of the response..



Seeing it relatively up-close doesn't always help. It's interesting to watch though.

Chopper flies over with one load of water from the river...



Brings back an empty in the time it takes to park the bike at the next pullout..





Grabs who knows how much from the river..



And the process repeats, and repeats, and repeats..
