Out and About: A smoky August in the Pincher Creek area

Smoke from fires in Montana filled the southern Alberta skies. On August 14 a forest fire ignited near Goat Haunt Montana, Glacier National Park, on the slopes of Campbell Mountain, on the west side of Upper Waterton Lake, prompting a short-term evacuation alert.  As the month progressed and the number of hectares consumed by fire grew south and southwest of Pincher Creek, so did the amount of smoke and ash in the air.  Health hazard alerts were issued by Alberta Health, particularly for the elderly and those with respiratory issues.  The air tasted like ash, and our throats were parched.
