8/5/2014 Time lapse video shows smoke coming into Washington last Sunday

We've seen widespread smoke impacts throughout Washington for a few days.  Some of the smoke is coming from the fires that are burning here but we're also getting some smoke from Oregon and as far away as California.  This time lapse video taken on Sunday August 3 shows generally hazy conditions in the Columbia River Gorge in the morning, and then in the afternoon and evening a fairly obvious plume, or multiple plumes, of smoke moves north across the river and into Washington.

And for orientation and context, below is what the view from the camera site looks like on a clear day.  It looks W/SW from Washington into Oregon across the Columbia River.  That's Mt. Hood in the distance. Live images from the site are available here:  http://www.fsvisimages.com/fstemplate.aspx?site=cori1
