Smoky Skies and Wildflowers
The smoke from the wildfires in British Columbia and the Verdant Creek fire moved into the Kootenay Plains earlier in the week while we were camping. The hazy skies made it harder to get the mountain photos we were hoping for but give a surreal feel to the area.
The wildflowers were out along the highways and trails, making for some pretty hikes along the way.
Windy Point is one of my favourite spot on a smoky day. The mountains are lines barely visible through the haze, giving a feeling of standing on the edge of nowhere as the strong winds blow by.
