Wildfire Haze in Door County, June 2023


Our hearts go out to everyone in Canada and across the United States that are in the midst of battling wildfires.  The smoke has had such an impact on so much of the US over the past few weeks.  The photo above is what Sister Bay USUALLY looks like on a sunny June day.  Not this week!  Here are some live photos of yesterday in Sister Bay:

And last night's sunset was kind of eerie....for the past week, it's been hard to see where the Bay stops and the horizon begins.

This is the time of the year when we look forward to some of the most glorious sunsets of the entire year, so we are glad it is much clearer (and hot and sunny) today.

We are so looking forward to the first week of July and all of the friends, family and visitors that will assist in making Door County have a fantastic Door County Independence Day celebration week (and last a week it does!).

The haze is terrible and is also horrible for healthy breathing. It will take a while for all to clear  up.
