2017 campout and hike at Mt. Adams

There was a major forest fire on the Oregon side of the Columbia River, set by somebody playing with fireworks. Air quality in Portland was very poor, leading to soccer games being cancelled and other adjustments.

We had to go up the Washington side because I-84 was closed for firefighting. We saw helicopters dumping huge buckets of water on the fires.

Surprisingly, the air quality at our camp was good, as you can see in the pictures.
