Wildlife adapts to life in an atmosphere of Forest Fire haze

September 5 2017. Sailed North through a very strange orange haze with the atmosphere for many miles being heavily affected by forest fires. We sailed alongside the racing wooden sailboat regatta of the Deer Harbor Wooden Boat Show. Presidents Channel, Point Disney, White Rock, Flattop Island, Cactus Islands, New Channel Рall so strange and the wildlife looks bewildered in this strange hazy light on what should be a summers day
