Default RV-8 and the Fires of Olympus

Saturday 9/16/23 was a nice enough day, not too hot, not too windy, the air was actually very smooth for the whole trip and I pulled off a couple of reasonably acceptable landings. The one fly in the ointment was that there were a lot of fires in the Olympic National Forest pumping a lot of smoke into the atmosphere.

We decided to check it out on the way home. I was over the area at 10,500' and some of the smoke was still above me. The easternmost fire is quite large. There was no one actively fighting these fires, in fact, there wasn't even a TFR over the area. I fear these will continue to burn until the rains return, whenever that is.

The video is linked below.
