Could be from anywhere including Ontario or California; it is all about wind direction.

Most likely the Wardle Fire in Kootenay National Park.

If you can smell it, like a campfire, likely these south of Golden.

Everywhere,

BC people will send smoke to all corners of North America every year now is seams. We are even seeing smoke from the Greece fires and the California wild fires traveling around the world giving us a light haze way up there. That’s what gives the beautiful sun sets... at a cost.

You name it.... your guess is as good as ours.

No idea, though it has been quite hazy and hot the last couple of days with another day the same tomorrow. Same haze right through to Calgary and well beyond. Still better than last year. Less smoke smell than yesterday so that's good.

Cooler with showers forecast for the weekend.

Smoke in Golden couldn't come from a fire which is way east of the town. Wind blows west to east. Wardle fire smoke is however landing in Calgary if you want to experience it with us.
