USA – October 5th, 2012

Wildfires continue to rage in northern and western USA in early October, mostly due to lack of rain. Here, smoke from wildfires in Idaho, near the Washington-Oregon border, looms over forests and rests in the valleys between mountain ridges. Other blazes can also be observed in Washington, near the Oregon border, in the upper left quadrant, releasing smoke that blows to the west.
