The smoke has returned. The air is hazy, but visibility is still a few km, for now. The forecast says it could turn back into the thick, choking fog in the next 48 hours, but it's kinda unpredictable exactly where that will settle, so there's no point trying to cycle around it.

I am leaving eastbound along Shuswap Road. First stop could be Niskonlith Lake, if i have the energy to cycle up the hill, or village of Chase, if i don't. Or, if i am completely full of energy i will keep going through to Turtle Valley and Skimikin Lake, or Salmon Arm. If the smoke is real bad i'll find a motel.

White Rock Lake wildfire is still burning just a few km south of all the above-mentioned locations, south-east of Kamloops and north-west of Vernon. Hopefully they get it under control despite the looming heat wave. I'm bringing 6 N95 respirators for smoke and 4 surgical masks for COVID.

Finished my coffee and porridge. Time to go pack up the bike.
