And then...

The smoke cleared. Well, mostly. There have been no large plumes for a couple of days leaving just a faint, almost not-there, blanket draped over the forest.

Locally this means that sometimes it's smoky, sometimes not. It's certainly quieter as the helicopters have fallen silent.

The guest season is to reopen on August 3rd. Here is a page of useful information about the conditions that you can expect if you visit.

David Zimmerman has finished his account of the fire and it's posted here.
