We spent some time here in 2005 and knew we would enjoy our stay. However, I had forgotten about the eternal wind that blows across this valley at sometime (either day or night—or both) in every single 24 hour period, but we learned to live with it. The good side of the wind is that it cools the air down (it has warmed up to the high 80s and low 90s ever day) and it blew the smoke away but the same wind blew the smoke in every day. The fires burning in Idaho and western Montana gave up their smoke in an easterly direction and here, we are in the direct line of fire (no pun intended). The surrounding hills have been shrouded with a bluish haze all but a half day here and there since we arrived.
These hazy sunsets tell the story of our time in White Sulphur Springs. .
