Haze hangs in the air around Steamboat Springs on Wednesday morning. Joe Ramey, a forecaster with the National Weather Service, said a northwest flow is bringing smoke from wildfires as far away as northern California, Nevada and southern Idaho. The haze Steamboat residents are seeing from the smoke could stick around through early next week, Ramey said. Maps of active fires across the U.S. are available at <a href="http://activefiremaps.fs.fed.us/">www.activefiremaps.fs.fed.us</a> and <a href="http://wildfiretoday.com/2012/08/14/wildfire-smoke-map-august-14-2012/">www.wildfiretoday.com</a>.

Moby enjoys a cool spot to relax in the water of Burgess Creek at the base of Steamboat Ski Area on Tuesday evening while hanging out with owner Eric Brooks. The National Weather Service in Grand Junction is forecasting a dry week with highs in the mid-80s in Steamboat Springs, but mostly clear skies could be marred by lingering smoke from Western wildfires.
