Not a good time to visit W. US and Canada
3

There are many fires in British Columbia (590), a couple large ones in Washington, big active fires on the Oregon/California border, huge still active fires north of San Francisco, numerous active fires in Northern and Central Idaho, active fires in Central Utah, active fires in Central Arizona, and numerous good-sized active fires throughout Colorado.

The bottomline is that especially in the Great Basin there is just a big revolving pool of smoke with little change likely. In Washington it will vary but generally be poor in Eastern Washington. This past week the air quality there was rated hazardous in several locations. In the Canadian Rockies and Glacier National Park it does not look good (and hasn't been). Banff and Jasper could see improvement around August 20th. Current better air is very short lived.

There are far better times to visit.
