In this bark-beetle-infested era of widespread fires, we have often gone a long way in search of clear air and big views, only to get smoked out. I stumbled across this resource -- NOAA publishes this interactive map -- you can check out your favorite areas for smoky air, visibility, and even forecasts of smoke:

What do you set the sliders at?
Halfway across?
Thanks, Pat

Thanks. It looks like probably good data if I can ever figure out how to get it to display.

Another site to pair with this AirNow.gov. This compiles air quality data from the agencies which collect it.

Pat, I think that the sliders depend on your personal preference. I feel lucky just to get it to display -- I am not very tech savvy.

Note that you can zoom in on specific locations to get really detailed info.
