Idaho is covered in smoke from the top to the bottom of the state. It's unreal.
Many of these fires were started by lightning strikes in hard-to-reach areas. But many of them continue because the forests they are burning have been so mismanaged under by FedGov and the eco-freaks who control it. I've gone into the damage that the eco-freaks agenda does to the national forests; you can search for all the different posts if you want. But we're seeing the evidence and damage in real time right now.
