Spruce Lake wildfire

Shortly after entering the Park at the south entrance and beginning my clockwise drive around West and East Rim Drive I noticed the smoke from this wildfire off to the west.  It is located outside the Park itself but within Klamath County.  It just started 5 days ago, currently involves 130 acres and is only 5 percent contained.

I’ve been keeping tabs on wildfires using some online maps and, barring future development, should be in good shape for the foreseeable future given the route I’m taking.  I am starting to notice more haze on the horizon as the wind moves the smoke from all the fires throughout the Northwest in various directions.
