Both are the result of wildfires in the Yukon. If it is this bad here, I can't imagine how smoky it is in Yukon Territory! I am heading up to Skagway tomorrow morning with my friend Sr. Dee. We are going for a little get away and will be taking the White Pass and Yukon railroad on an excursion. I'm hoping the haze will clear a bit - it is no doubt a lot smokier in Haines and Skagway.
Sunlight takes on a strange orangish glow when there is smoke in the air. You can see it best if you look at the shadows (please ignore our scuffed and badly-in-need-of-a-paint-job porch floor).
I tried to catch the light in the living room. You can see it a little bit, but mostly you can see Beans and Frida wondering why I am taking pictures of the floor. In the background are Hoda and Kathie Lee on the TV (yes, I watch morning television!).
Coming up this week are photos from my whale watch trip and the pictures I will be taking on our Skagway trip!
Have a great Monday!
