Wildfire smoke blankets Tetons

Tourists take in what would typically be an uninterrupted view of the Teton Range on July 14 from the Snake River Overlook along U.S. Highway 191 in Grand Teton National Park. The Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality, Air Quality Division, and the Wyoming Department of Health issued air quality alerts Thursday and Friday for wildfire smoke. Despite a respite over the weekend, the smoke that has hazed skies, obscured vistas and clouded throats doesn’t seem to be leaving any time soon.
