Since my last visit out to the Columbia River Gorge on Sept. 3, 2017, the Eagle Creek Fire continues to smolder today.
Back in October 1991, a fire broke out at the top of Multnomah Falls. A Boeing Vertol 234 “Chinook” was spotted collecting water from the Columbia River, rising over I-84 to dump on the fire.
Smoke from regional fires filled the sky, making the moon appear as a faint red dot.
The setting sun gives a blood red appearance as it filters through the smoky sky.
Ash from nearby wildfires fell from the sky in the Portland metropolitan area on Labor Day.
A fire in Eagle Creek area in the Columbia River Gorge broke out Saturday afternoon. On Sunday, smoke fills the Columbia River Gorge.
