452. Flying to Check Adams Lake Wildfire Situation. Kamloops Oct 1, 2023

By Jan Nademlejnsky | Oct 05, 2023

I am following my failed attempt in previous day to check the Shuswap area affected by Adams Lake 456 km2 wildfire. This time I made it there. I was still restricted by required elevation of 2134 m (7000 ft) ASL to clear the fire zone restriction. You could see the extent and natural selectivity; one area is burned and the other is spared. I could saw smoldering areas E of Squilax Mt (N 50.846390 W 119.54024). I hope someone is still paying attention to it. As far I know all firefighting aircraft left Kamloops, so ground crew must keep it in check. I flew 192 km (119 mi) in perfect day but sad situation for fire affected people.
