Not much for me to report on the (apparent) status of the fire this afternoon since you can hardly see the mountain. According to reports at the Sheridan Media website, this is due to a managed back burn they are conducting on top, and also from a fire now burning in the Shell Canyon area (north of the Falls Visitor Center, dubbed the “Bone Creek Fire.” According to the report, those fires, as well as fires in Montana are contributing to the amount of smoke we are experiencing in this area.
