July 27 (5/6)

On July 27, the hot part of the year had finally arrived. This shot is only about an hour after sunrise and it shows a great deal of smoky haze. Although there haven’t been any major fires in Montana this year, there are still a few that were burning when this was taken. My guess would be that this smoke was blown in from the 4,000+ acre fire near Missoula, though Missoula isn’t very close to Glacier.

The temperature in this image is already in the mid-60s at a little before 9 am, so the day was shaping up to be well over 80 before the day was through. As usual in Montana, that means that the humidity was lower. In this case, it was at 48% and would be dropping as the day got hotter.
