Lewis & Clark's Lolo Pass Campsite, 207 years later

So I’m traveling in Montana just now, and visited Lolo Pass and the Glade Creek campsite of the Lewis & Clark “Corps of Discovery” almost exactly 207 years after they were there (they passed through on September 13th, 1805, and I was there on September 15th), but what was most obvious about the area was the choking smog of forest fire smoke. It’s intense up here. We drove almost two hundred miles through peasoup fog fire smoke. And the locals say this was an unusually hot summer. Here’s a photo of the Lewis & Clark campsite, supposedly little changed since 1805.
