Photo detail

Smoke screen: Haze along the Dee Highway near Odell around 6 p.m. Sunday puts an eerie cast on the landscape. Three northward views on Saturday from the same location at Waterfront Park beach during the SUP Challenge illustrate the increasingly-smoky conditions in the Gorge Saturday and Sunday from mid-day to late afternoon.
